Rather than copying the file, create a link to it so that it's automatically updated whenever you change your screen settings: $ sudo ln ~/.config/monitors.xml /var/lib/lightdm/.config/monitors.xml (No, symbolic links DO NOT work.)

comment Ubuntu on Mac - use 32-bit or 64-bit image?
That post does not explain why to use 64-bit instead of 32-bit. In fact, x86 and 32-bit don't show up AT ALL in that thread.

Yes. I am NOT asking the difference between AMD64+mac and AMD64. I am asking why the releases page recommends the 32-bit package instead of the 64-bit package. NOTE: The +mac version is just to help boot the CD -- I just installed REGULAR, NON-+mac 64-BIT package on the Mac and had NO boot problems with USB.

The other question/answer deals specifically with booting to Live CD (not USB!) on a Mac (that's why they created the Amd64+mac). New MacBook Pro's don't even have disc drives so it's irrelevant for me.

Nope - that's asking about the difference between the Amd64 and the Amd64+mac releases. I am asking which is best for a Mac between x86 and Amd64/Amd64+mac.

Silver lining: Maybe I'll use this situation to finally try out Nginx! :)

@muru - thanks, that was the first thing I thought of. Saturday Oct 18: I was just watching movies. I'm no guru, but I'm experienced enough to not copy/paste instructions without knowing exactly what I'm pasting first.

@Lucio - Note the part where I said "I did not run that command (I checked my bash history)" :-) "nginx" doesn't appear there at all.
