One-liner that doesn't require su root? Yep, here you go: echo 2937 | sudo tee /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness

comment Constantly asked for WiFi password and CA certificate
I found that going to the "General" tab and unticking "All users may connect to this network", then re-adding the password in the "Wi-Fi Security" tab is the only thing I needed to do.

comment Software Sources: Select Best HTTPS Server
Knowing of the GPG signatures makes me a little more comfortable accepting updates now :)

A comment on that post provided this script to find HTTPS-enabled mirrors: pastebin.com/QY2TQ1dq

Also, the top answer makes a good point that the MITM could simply provide me an older package with a valid GPG signature -- one they know has an exploit.

Good to know. But how does my client obtain these GPG signatures? Can't a Man In The Middle just serve me a GPG signature that matches the package they're sending me?

comment Wrong Login Screen Resolution
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.

comment Ubuntu on Mac - use 32-bit or 64-bit image?
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.
