Raspberry Pi 3 running NOOBS with Raspbian Pixel installed.

So i'm trying to setup a webserver on my Raspberry Pi 3 and did that. Then i added MySQL.

Running sudo aptitude install mysql-server php5-mysql installed unwanted software, uninstalled wanted software, and changed icon-set to Raspbian Jessie (non Pixel version). Also whenever i click a taskbar item (other than menu button) it gives me a error: /usr/share/raspi-ui-overrides/applications/geany.desktop: No such file or directory. Where geany is that is where whatever software i try to run name is.

How do i undo this without reinstalling my system?? Please help!

UPDATE 2-11-2017:

It will not boot into the desktop after rebooting. I used raspi-config to enabled booting into desktop by default, then rebooted. Nothing. No desktop or terminal. After sshing into my pi, enabling booting into CLI (I think that's what it's called), then rebooted. Now back at the terminal. Typing startx doesn't work. So know my desktop is gone!!
