comment Why am I unable to get WebGL?
Try to start Chrome/Chromium in a terminal using chromium-browser --enable-webgl --ignore-gpu-blacklist (replace chromium-browser with the name of Chrome executable) and check again chrome://gpu.

comment At the beginning of an Ubuntu installation, what means the ”keyboard = human“ symbol?
I think it means something like "press any key to access special options". If you don't press any key it boots as you selected "Install Ubuntu". If you press any key you get many other options (boot a live session, change language/keyboard, pass options to kernel/installer, etc)

comment Manual installation. Where do I start?
@JohnSantiago What do you mean by "crash"? The network applet goes down? All Unity freezes? Or the computer really crashes (a kernel panic/general lock)? Also can you be more specific on what you are trying to achieve (offline install some software/package, fix your network).

comment How to revert changes made by *.deb
@Noel Have you tried to run sudo apt-get remove gimpshop? That package is installed under /usr/local, so it shouldn't have replaced anything. if you already have Gimp installed you can start it using /usr/bin/gimp.

comment 1 hour of battery life lost in 10 seconds
@Stan You can use powertop to see what is draining your battery power. Also providing your machine specs (CPU, Optimus/hybrid GPU technology?, etc) should help to diagnose your problem.
