I accidentially changed permissions on many many files in var/ file in ubuntu and now my ubuntu will not boot on system start. The generic purple background will load, but after 5 seconds, the normal ubuntu logo is not displayed, and my caps lock light starts blinking.
I'm thinking the only solution is to uninstall ubuntu and then reinstall the system. I could be wrong, perhaps there is a way to automatically generate the files and permissions that I deleted.
Possibly a way to merge a fresh version of ubuntu with the version I already have installed.
I'm really not sure what my course of action is and the time is ticking on the work day.
