I'm not the expert here but it looks like you could have kernel painic or close to it going on.
http://www.solo-technology.com/blog/...pain-easy-fix/

This article is old but it can give you knowledge to maybe make a decision on what would be the best approach.That is if your system is under panic-
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Kernel_Panics

I saw this message in your terminal output"attempted to kill init!"
This article may help:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1...nit-without-er

You say you can't even access recovery mode; what about grub rescue or roll back to an older version of the kernel?

There may be other approaches to this but if it were me I would re-install my distro and make certain that no other users do not have root permissions unless you have not other choice.

One System Administrator is usually best unless trust has been built.

Hope this helps

The deleted pkg is called libqtcore4, guess is a one very important one regarding the UI.

But i really don't get it because ASAP i saw it deleting i i immediately did determine the proc which. Then the main problem occurred, the bash was locked on that process

so i could get it even manually repaired.

I wasn't even able to re-install the deleted pkg since apt-get was locked to that with the bash which was deleting.

As you may know i could fix the prob neither using synaptic.

I am really not sure what to do next.

Your libqtcore4 is a very important library-
Qt is a cross-platform C++ application framework. Qt's primary feature is its rich set of widgets that provide standard GUI functionality. That package was part of the core module if my memory and reading serves me correctly.

I'm really sorry; I bet your upset....I know I would be!

Take a look at the links to the article's I posted if for no other reason you can learn from it.

I'll look in my 'Linux Bible'(might take some time) and see if there are solutions to this if not you may have to re-install your distro-

I pulled up my Linux Bible on my Desktop and started going through the manual. So far I haven't found any fixes but I'm not one to give up either.

I found the forum for your distribution! And well they may be able to help you too since they specialize in Kubuntu only. http://www.kubuntuforums.net/showthr...u-kernel-panic

If your still having a hard time you can write to an Administrator at the Kubuntu Forum:
http://www.kubuntuforums.net/sendmessage.php

There is one other group the 'Ubuntu Forums' they have a separate section within their forum to discuss other distro talk. I'm giving you all the resources I have in the hope that you'll find your solution.
http://ubuntuforums.org/

BTW I enjoy helping folks so your very welcome and if I find anything else I'll post back to you as soon as I do.

Hang in there;SIQKO

Don't know if you can do this in Ubuntu, but in RHEL/Centos, you can boot from the install DVD, then install pkgs to the HDD from the DVD.
Here's an example where the bash pkg needs replacing
Code:
rpm -ivh --replacepkgs --root /mnt/sysimage /mnt/source/Server/bash-3*.rpm
/mnt/sysimage is where the install DVD mounts the HDD.

HTH
