Can you log into a TTY console as root ?
Press Ctrl+F1, this should switch you from the desktop GUI to a full screen console.

Login as root, enter the root password.
Now try reading the contents of /var and /var/lib

ls -an /var

if you have a /var/lib/mysql directory, list the contents of that too.

Some versions of msyql put the data in a DATA directory, instead of directly in /var/lib/mysql. If you have some data in there, such as an ibdata file or a FRM file that are not empty (ib_data files can be quite big), then you have a chance to recover your data.

Read up on how to reset the mysql privileges for your Linux distribs :

Ask on the PCLinuxOS forums.
