Need Help - Deleted Files


A client of mine logged into the server and accidently deleted /etc/dbus/

I can still get into the GUI Interface from KDE Via Emergency Terminal. However, I cannot log on the sessions screen anymore, beacuse it fails to find this directory and causes a sessions error. How would I restore /etc/dbus? What i mean by that is where would I find the files so I wouldent have to do a complete reformat

Rep: Reputation: 16 far as i'm aware, rm-rf is pretty final. Sorry, you've permanently removed it from the Hard disk. Your only hope is to find a back-up of the directory or files.
