comment X.Org X Server driver or AMD proprietary driver?
Until recently the dynamic power management was disabled on the open source drivers by default, and one had to set a kernel command line parameter to enable it. Since Kernel 3.13 dynamic power management is enabled in the open source driver as well for many cards, so with a recent kernel version the overheating issue should no longer be present.

comment Ubuntu 14.04 - Flash Drives Not Working
@Waqleh This sounds like a hardware issue. I had similar issues when using the front USB ports of my computer, which obviously have a too high internal resistance. I'd suggest to try to use a powered USB hub or, if you were using the front USB ports, try to use the ports directly on the mainboard.

comment How do I convert a PNG to SVG, using a software?
If you are lucky, you can simply edit the SVG files in a text editor. Often they have a viewBox defined in the opening SVG-Tag: <svg width="100%" height="100%" version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" viewBox="0 0 1050 431" preserveAspectRatio="xMinYMin"> - Maybe you can edit the viewBox for your file, placing appropriate margins? Another option is to group all SVG elements using the <g> tag and to apply a suitable transformation to that group (like: scaling it).

comment How do I convert a PNG to SVG, using a software?
You should nevertheless be aware that there is a fundamental difference between vector graphics like SVG and pixel graphics like PNG. Once you loose the vector information, there is no (loss free) way to restore it. So, even if you "convert" from PNG to SVG, you basically do nothing else as embedding the pixel graphics (base64 encoded) within an SVG vector graphics file. The convert command is even worse: It places a circle for every pixel of the pixel graphics, what leads to very large file sizes. I'd therefore try to directly cut the SVG file.

comment How to install a Ubuntu 14.04 System on a 128 GB USB
My first guess would be that maybe the USB drive has a GPT partition table, instead of an MBR based one. Maybe it helps to create a new partition table on the USB drive - gparted is a powerful GUI tool that allows you to choose what type of partition table it should be. The most compatible one is MBR.

Was fglrx installed when you collected the log file? I'm asking since the log says the fglrx X11 module could not be found.
