...everything is gone.
Not sure what to include but it's an older HP Desktop - I don't think the hardware is a concern but will post it if you need it.
Been running Linux Mint exclusively for the past several months with no real issues until I installed WINE to play the 1 Windows game that I left behind when I went to Linux.
Well, that didn't really work out too well.
I was only able to run the first line: "sudo apt-get remove wine" and when I tried to run the next line, I received a message that read, "you don't have permissions for that" so I said, "feh" and skipped ahead to the "sudo apt-get remove -purge wine" line & nothing appeared to happen...until I closed my browser and then noticed my desktop was missing.
Checked my files and *poof* everything is gone. Photos, Music, Videos, Downloads, Documents.
At this point, I said a curse word out loud! Well, I may have said a few of them.
I checked the Trash but they weren't there. I also knew/know enough not to turn off my machine....but don't know if they (all my stuff) is anywhere that can be restored.
Thanks to my time here in the Fourms, I've got about 98 percent of all that backed up in a couple of places so I'm frustrated but not going crazy.
The funniest part of all this, is that the freaking WINE app is still showing in my Menu.
Hints, Tips, Saving Moves?
Any & all feedback appreciated.
