Please try to expand a little what you've been using exactly. And have you also tried new forks mentioned in comments, etc. (e.g. github.com/odeke-em/drive) as it seems the old grive no longers works because Google changed its API.

comment Not able to install VLC program from .tar.xz file
Also note that if you follow one of the methods I've suggested, you can find the .deb file(s) downloaded and used to install the app in this folder: /var/cache/apt/archives/.

comment Not able to install VLC program from .tar.xz file
Especially considering that you're new to Ubuntu I suggest you use easier and more user-friendly methods to install apps. In this case you should be able to find VLC in the Software Center, or - if you think the VLC version there is a little old - you might just enter these commands in terminal: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:videolan/stable-daily and then sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install vlc.

comment How to hide unity launcher border line
too bad that unity developers have apparently opted for keeping this hard-coded :-( maybe filing a bug (e.g. 1px away from full transparency) in launchpad attracting a large number of supporters might help persuade them to implement it in the same way as button backgrounds, etc. ;-)

You might also try checking the files ~/.local/share/mimeapps.list and ~/.local/share/mimeinfo.cache - if necessary - changing or adding the entry text/xml=gedit.desktop
