Accidentally eliminated Accessories under Applications, which contains "Terminal"

Asked by jsmorris on 2010-08-12

Binary package hint: nautilus

Unknowingly I touched some menu under Applications which removed the folder or heading of Accessories, which is where I need to go for installing new programs.Using Ubuntu 9.10 Karma Kaola.
I was looking to install an antivirus program which requires starting in Terminal but instead had to abort it

You can get a terminal via Ctrl+Alt+F1, and try to repair after.

You can restore it...

Please right click on top left Ubuntu icon and select Edit Menus

or access to: System→Preferences→Main Menu

Can you help with this problem?
