comment How to install lightdm-set-defaults?
To my knowledge, lightdm-set-defaults just edited the configuration files and did not cause any changes to the running instance of lightdm. Even with that command, you still would have had to restart lightdm for your changes to take effect.

comment How do I rotate my display when not using an X Server?
video=efifb may be necessary on intel based Apple computers for fbcon to actually work. I had included it based on this question: unix.stackexchange.com/questions/68369/… Including it on other systems doesn't seem to hurt

I have removed video=efifb from the grub command based on this information.

comment In XUbuntu there are black unreadable tabs in GTK applications such as gEdit
Found it under "Settings" -> "Appearance". I'm not sure how it differs from the theme selection for the window manager, but it does seem to solve the problem. Of all the themes listed there, only "Raleigh" has the problem in gedit.

How do you get that appearance dialog? I have been choosing themes from "Settings" -> "Window Manager" which looks much different and doesn't have "Radiance" listed.

comment How can I accept the Microsoft EULA agreement for ttf-mscorefonts-installer?
It is simpler just to use sudo only on the part of the command that needs it:echo ttf-mscorefonts-installer msttcorefonts/accepted-mscorefonts-eula select true | sudo debconf-set-selections
