Ubuntu – My terminal shows only a blank screen–How can it

bashrccommand line

I recently installed Ubuntu 13.10. in the process of editing bash.bashrc file something went wrong and all of a sudden all i'm getting when I open my terminal is a blank screen. No directory names or $. So I can't execute any commands to update, install, fix or anything. All the help out I come across assume I can use the command line.
Anyone knows how to fix this? or how maybe how I can recover the default bashrc file (without using the command line)? Is my only option uninstalling and reinstalling Ubuntu? I don't even know how to do that without the command line.

No Problem , you can restore it easily.

Just press CTRL+ALT+F1 & login there

then paste as

cp /etc/skel/.bashrc ~/
source .bashrc

Then type CTRL+ALT+F7 to reverse to GUI desktop.
