I accidently deleted the lib directory


I don't have ls command, shutdown etc.

What should I do?

Do I have to re-install?

oh, god!

I want to cry.

btw: my command is like this:

rm -r lib

can I restore it?

this is from the man pages for the "rm" command

Note that if you use rm to remove a file, it is usually possible to
recover the contents of that file. If you want more assurance that the
contents are truly unrecoverable, consider using shred.

this might help
