Summary0007773: delete kali files my mistake
DescriptionHi Kali

was trying to fix pulseaudio and mess up my machine, deleted some files and directories.

 sudo apt-get purge pulseaudio pulseaudio-utils gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio paman pavumeter pavucontrol
rm ~/ .pulse-cookie
rm -r ~/ .pulse

is there a way to boot from previous state. Thanks

If you have a VM snapshot, assuming a VM, then simply revert back to the snapshot.
If you are on bare metal, and you don't have a backup, or aren't using the btrfs snapshots, then no, but if you are using btrfs and its snapshots feature, you'd use that.

Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do here. But it is a good reminder to always double check your rm commands - I am assuming you mean you accidentally typed those commands with the spaces in them and lost everything in your ~ directory.
