    Want to boot to Command line

    So this might be backwards, but sometimes I have been known to be.

    I want to boot 12.04 to command line vs X, and initiate X after when I need to, but can't find how I would disable X on boot up.

    The reason is I'm getting lazy on using the command line unless I am not sure how to do it graphically.

    Code:
    echo  "manual" | sudo tee -a /etc/init/lightdm.override
    You can then use startx whenever you want a GUI.

    Thanks, missed looking for disabling lightdm, or the obvious tag "boot without X"
