Remove gnome GUI
I am new to Linux, have used KDE/SLAX before but am now attempting to use linux on my old computer to accomplish these objectives:
1) Run an FTP so I (& my mates) can access files anywhere wit ease(no dramas).
2) Enable sharing of my drives so I can put files from Laptop into this computer
Now I have successfully Installed Ubuntu Server (Finallllly) but then messed up cuz I installed the Gnome GUI and now cant find any place where I can type any sudo commands. vsftpd should work for me right??
Can I just uninstall Gnome?? Alt-F2 --> "gnome terminal" doesn't work
Any help would be really appreciated. thanks
P.S I didn't get much help at servers so em here
Re: Remove gnome GUI
Note the hyphen!
Assuming gnome terminal is in the default gnome install, that should get it for you.
Otherwise a simple Ctrl+Alt+F1 would take you to a command line where you login as usual, and enter commands the same as in the gnome-terminal.
If you really want to remove all of gnome look at the Pure gnome, Pure KDE etc etc on the Playing around section on the left hand pane of this page:-
