    Removed essential files


    Hi
    I've made a bad decision, used symnaptic and removed some essential files from my os.

    libdm-nouveau1-dbg 2.4.18-lubuntu userspace interface

    and

    xserver-xorg-video-nouveau

    Now i can only access my home dir data from a live cd. Can I re-install the missing files from the live cd? A fresh install will require me to back up all my data wont it ?

    Thanks

    Unless you have a seperate /home partition, yes, you need to backup your data before reinstalling. It's good practise to have backups anyway.
    Can you access the installed OS at all?
    What happens if you issue these commands?
    Code:
    Ctrl+Alt+F1
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libdm-nouveau1-dbg
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau
