I recently installed virtual box on my debian partition and after if was finished, the terminal recommeneded that i remove some "unnecessary" software by use of sudo apt-get autoremove. I did that and it uninstalled a huge list of stuff. Some of my icons changed on my desktop and the system, administration and applications dropdown menus at the top of my screen had different icons and were missing heaps of applications. I then restarted the system thinking that this would help and it booted back into a shell prompt asking me to login. I tried to get back to the GUI using alt+f7 but it didnt seem to exist. Is there any way to fix this? What happened? Any help would be appreciated.
