sudo apt-get -f install
sudo apt-get --fix-missing install
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get --reinstall install ubuntu-desktop

and to reboot

sudo reboot

But cannot establish internet,because modem cannot find my lan connection.the lan light is off when I connect it to my netbook

Boot to root recovery mode and run:

chmod 1777 /tmp; reboot

Should be ok

Mehman Jamalov (mcamalov) said : #11

actionparsnip, but nothing happened,I did everything as you said


chmod 755 /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.system

In root recovery mode

May also want to run:

chown -R root:root /var/lib/gdm
chmod -R 777 /var/lib/gdm

ok,I am just testing it

Mehman Jamalov (mcamalov) said : #15

how can open my Desktop as a window by typing in Terminal? which commands do I have to write?

Mehman Jamalov (mcamalov) said : #16

It did not worked, actionparsnip

Hold shift at boot and select recovery mode, then select root. This is where all the commands I have given need to be ran...

Mehman Jamalov (mcamalov) said : #18

I did it it as you said, as you know I can run terminal in my screen by pressing CTRL+ALT+T, and I want to display my Destop as a folder,and my own home directory also,how can I di these?

cd ~/Desktop

will (c)hange (d)irectory to your desktop folder.

Mehman Jamalov (mcamalov) said : #20

my system cannot find usb stick and sharing folder :((

What do you mean? I thought nautilus was having an issue running. What does that have to do with USB access or sharing..

Mehman Jamalov (mcamalov) said : #22

I want to install Ubuntu 11.04 to usb stick,and will try it ,then will copy all my files to 80 Gb flash,and then will format it,but I couldnot do this,because my netbook couldnot boot usb stick

Why don't you have a backup? You can access your data from liveCD as you ay

Can you help with this problem?
