Oh ok... Is there any workaround?
Try to find the arm version of the software you are interested in, or build from sources (if available).

Arm vs x86

You said is 64bit but I tried run a 64BIT installer software .SH file I downloaded & got error: "this release is for x64 systems not i686". Seems in the terminal or kernel somewhere the OS still says 32bit? How can I fix this? Can I install a 64bit terminal or something? You cannot install intel x6...

And what about source packages
so we can rebuild packages
Are they available?
Kernel packages are built from the RaspberryPi kernel sources with only a minor modifications to build btrfs driver statically and to enable virtualization.
If you are interested, I can provide my build script.

Re: Boot Desktop on Ubuntu Mate WITHOUT HDMI Interface

I think it is best not to use desktop's automount feature at all. I always disable it. If you need to mount an external drive when it is connected, it is a simple task to create a bash script which checks for the drive attachment (for example every 5~10 seconds) and mounts it if needed.

I have the impression that the kms drivers are used for display, but I could be wrong.
Is it possible to switch to fake-kms instead and to set the GPU memory to something like 128M?
vc4-fkms-v3d is used, as you can see in config.txt.
