laminate install question (wall at 45 angle)

Hi,
What's the recommended method of installation when the last piece is cut at 45 degrees to conform to the wall . Using a tapping block (to mate the short ends) is kind of tricky because its hard to generate enough force in the right direction to lock the pieces.

i was thinking of shaving a bit off the tongue & groove at point (X)to make them easy to mate and then running a thin bead of glue to lock them
any better suggestions
thanks, vin

can't you flip them? start the whole floor in the opposite diagonal corner,?
