Restore from your most recent backup.

How did you install xmlib2, and what version?

It's where you put it when you created it.

If you can login with in TTY, then you can grab your files and put them on external hard drive (if your system is capable of mounting anything). If you don't have it and can't access the system even with command line, one option to get to your files is to take the hard drive out and mount it on another computer. Hard to tell, your pictures are not very informative.

Another idea would be to provide us with the syslog, which you can get with instructions from your second "screenshot"

You could always use a Live-Cd to boot from and then there would be options available,

1. repair the installed system.

2. backup all the data from the system then wipe it and re-install.

and probably more options but these are the only two I would usually use.

You could search google (other search engines are available) and this forum for chroot instructions and then once you are in that environment you can install/remove packages using apt and also modify any config files you need. Sometimes if it is just a matter of changing some settings it can be done by simply mounting the HDD and modifying the config files or whatever needs changing and once finished you can reboot into your repaired OS.
