    After a while, you get a *gut feeling* for this sort of stuff, and my gut was telling me; it's a plugin issue. Why?

    First thing I did was look in these forums, to see if anyone else was having a problem with Flash. Seeing nothing, I started this thread, then did some forensics.

    Flash appeared be be installed, but my browsers weren't recognizing the SWF plugin.

    In my rush to try Lightspark, that's about as far as I got into investing the problem -- Facebook was calling me -- and I needed to get Flash (any Flash) working. Adobe Flash won the toss...

    Kinda sad how much we depend on an orphaned app, eh what?!?!?

    I haven't kept track. Is it startx? Or gdm restart? Or service lxdm restart? Or is it lxde? Or stop & start? So I just used the "no think" method and rebooted.

    External monitor on my notebook "mirrors" the laptop on boot of live USB or of install.

    Not really, the notebook is 1366x768 and the external monitor 1280x1024.

    What I get is 1024x768. Select System Settings, Displays and un-check mirror and boom. Some complicated error. Absolutely stuck on mirror and 1024x768. That's a "regression", used to work, and still does on another partition oops don't update that until there's a fix, if ever.

    Update: Able to get going by using the notebook's keyboard disable of laptop display, and then Display seems to default to something usable on the external. Still can't change anything on settings Display but quantal is up and running.

    Apport and ubuntu-bug have been rather poor lately....
