comment Ubuntu screwed up my computer
Did you decide to use the whole disk to install Ubuntu? Or to replace Windows? Did you instal Ubuntu in unallocated space? Do have a Windows installation medium (DVD/CD/USB/whatever you use to install)? Btw: installing another operating system has nothing to do with Ubuntu. How to install Windows is off topic and should be asked on superuser.com In case you did install Ubuntu on a separate partition and it is a matter of GRUB configuration: please provide an image of your disk layout from gParted.

comment Trinity Assembly
You should ask this the maintainer of "trinity" since the call the software does to Java seems to return an error (assuming your command parameters are correct). By the way: I assume we are talking about trinityrnaseq.github.io so groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/trinityrnaseq-users will be a better place to ask this/

Use the grub method. It is easy too ;-) but you just need to the experience to be comfortable with it.

comment Deleted drivers. How to get them back with LiveUSB?
Have you considered switching to a console with control-alt-f1 and logging in from there OR by pressing ESC at the grub prompt and go to resque mode? That way you use sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-ati from command and even reconfigure the display with dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg without the need of a Live session.

comment How can I use Ubuntu to recover files on an NTFS file system which is dirty?
"The NTFS partition is in an unsafe state. Please resume and shutdown Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting), or mount the volume read-only with the 'ro' mount option." is what you need to do.

comment Manual Partitioning with Dell Recovery's Ubuntu fails
- "but at some stage it fails" too vague. - Our version works... then I would contact Dell support from linux.dell.com

comment Is there any alternative for crontab -e?
What do you consider "cron" to be? "crontab -e"? "/etc/crontab"? "anacron"? All of them? Have you considered a "service/webservice/daemon"? (or for that matter using a better language ;-) )

comment Very light linux for 3GB Laptop to build pentest lab
We only support and help with official Ubuntu versions. Distributions like Kali are off topic. If you want a general answer, so not specific to using Ubuntu, you need to ask this on unix.stackexchange.com The question about what to install is too generic and already been thoroughly answered here askubuntu.com/questions/206407/…

comment Failed to fetch PPA launchpad
The 1st error: Ubuntu 10.10 has gone end of life a long long time ago and so did support on AskUbuntu. All the errors are likely to be related to this. The 2nd error has been asked before: see askubuntu.com/questions/661322/error-during-apt-get-update and askubuntu.com/questions/65911/…

comment Windows 10 does not boot from GRUB
"bootrec.exe/scanos" is a Windows command and we are an Ubuntu support site. If you want help with that I would suggest asking this on superuser.com "Could that have something to do with the following message after executing" We can not answer this. And the last bit has me believe your Windows is messed up and it probably is not grub that is the problem but the OS itself.
