comment error: file '/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found
+1 After following these steps to boot into my ubuntu installation I ran sudo grub-install /dev/sdX to install my grub. I think the LVM install confused my grub somehow.

comment How can I create an alias for cd and ls?
I had problems redefining cd because rvm changes my cd definition too. See stackoverflow.com/a/19941991/1601989

Try installing those two manually, maybe there are security updates that won't allow you to install an older version.

comment How do I format my 24gb SSD for ubuntu?
Haven't had that problem before, the one thing I do know is that some bios can't read /boot partitions bigger than 1GB, so you should also reduce the size of that partition.

Disabling secure boot is exactly what I meant. Are you having that issue even after disabling secure boot?

comment How to use Vlc with sudo privileges?
I am sure they have security in mind, applications that play online (downloaded) content are prone to attacks and running with elevated privileges makes a successful attack way more dangerous.

Can you disable EFI through bios? If you aren't doing dual boot then you really don't need to keep it.
