comment can't get back into ubuntu 14.04 LTS/xfce4 after x.org update - known conflict x.org & xbmc
Try opeing a console with ctrl + alt + F1, and uninstall the conflicting package with sudo apt-get purge packagename. Check what this would uninstall before accepting. If it says it will uninstall 100 packages, cancel the operation.

comment How do I install Flash on kubuntu 11?
kubuntu 11.xx is no longer supported and hence you cannot easily install software. Install a newer version like 14.04 and try again.

comment Deleting Windows Partition + Installing Ubuntu = Please Help!
If Ubuntu and Mint are still there and One key deleted grub, all you need to do is reinstall grub to get access to them. On the other hand, if you don't care if your OS's disappear, simply install Ubuntu on the entire disk, the installer will get rid of all the partitions and create a new one for Ubuntu + a Swap partition.

What have you tried to solve the issue? This could be an issue with UEFI and secure boot.

comment I can't find my windows 7 after installing ubuntu
I'm not familiar with testdisk but the recovery partition is usually a hidden partition so it's "normal" that you don't see it. Many manufacturers boot from this partition by pressing a key on power up. For HP this seems to be F11. Try turning on anf press and hold F11.

comment What can be done when my Ubuntu completely hangs and nothing works?
What your cousin typed was proabably ctrl + alt + F1 (or F2 - F6). This is a real console and you can run terminal commands after you login.

Flash Player is free (you do not have to pay to use it) but not Open Source (as you said it is proprietary software).

OSS ≠ Free. There is free software that's not open source (example: Adobe Flash Player).
