User of Ubuntu since 11.04. Currently running 14.10. Amateur CLI geek. Interested in Javascript and, to a lesser extent, Python and Java.

Random quotes...

Don't blame me. I'm an interpreter. I'm not supposed to know a power socket from a computer terminal.

Okay, so it seems like the problem is a great library for generating PDF files with PHP.
So almost true...

Alice: How do you know I'm mad?
Cat: You must be. Or you wouldn't have come here.

Or just change the boot order. I don't think recommending a total BIOS revert is the best option here. +1 nevertheless.

comment How should I deal with bugs that are for unsupported versions of Ubuntu?
@ThomasW. I checked the triage guide when this question was asked. If it is in there it isn't very clear.

comment What caused this GRUB error?
@Hans Reinstalling might work because the system may skip the bad sectors, although usually you have to replace the bad blocks manually. Really you should replace the hard drive ASAP.

comment Script to move files or directories using scp and zenity
Ask Ubuntu is not a code writing service. If you have a specific question about your existing code then you can ask here or on Stack Overflow. If you want someone to review your working code then you can ask on Code Review. Asking someone to write a script for you is not going to go over well on any SE site.

This question might be on-topic here, but only if this question directly relates to using Ubuntu and your question is specific to that. Please edit your question to clarify these points.
