While trying to install rmagick and failing, I thought I would uninstall libfreetype6 and then reinstall it. When I entered sudo apt-get remove libfreetype6
It asked that the following packages will be removed, the list was long and included nearly everything from gnome to java to firefox to chrome and all. the link of output which is badly formatted is here: http://pastie.org/private/yaralfafjwjtsjlnzgwzig
I pressed y for yes, and it uninstalled everything. I shutdown the pc and when i opened it again, there was only command line interface, no desktop! I need to repair it. How can i repair my ubuntu 8.04 install? i dont want to lose any data so i dont want to reinstall ubuntu 8 from cd. Please help!
