    sudo rm -rf.trash/ *

    after this everything just gone, even the files on my desktop and even any preferences that i had made for my imac. what can i do??
    is there any way to recover those information?

    Because of your typo (.trash/ * instead of .Trash/*) you deleted everything in your Home folder. I guess you need some data recovery software to maybe be able to restore (some of) the data.
