Problem re-installing ROS

I have removed ROS in order to solve some problems I had, but I removed the "ros" folder in /opt sending it to the trash, which I think was a bad idea.

I have tried to reinstall ROS again, but when I do $ sudo apt-get install ros-electric-desktop-full

only the "stacks" folder is created inside /opt/electric.

I have done $ sudo apt-get remove ros-electric-desktop-full and tried to reinstall it again, but i doesn't work.

What should I do to get ROS again, please?

Thank you

I have already solved my problem.

I had to open Synaptic, look for ros-electric there, and mark for complete removal. Then I could reinstall it again.
