    Ubuntu 15.04 dafault boot to terminal

    Hi, I haved installed a server 15,04, I installed the graphic interface to be enable the wifi etc. But now I want to revert to default terminal on open.

    Following threads I should enter the "Text" in the file /etc/default/grub like below
    Then i did sudo update-gnome and the sudo reboot.

    But newertheless it starts up in GUI, what am I doing wrong?

    Trandre; Hello;

    Your edit to '/etc/default/grub' looks good; the fault I see:
    Then i did sudo update-gnome and the sudo reboot.
    The command to propagate the change to the system should be:
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    Try that and advise on results .

    it's them there little things

    Hi Again, I did the sudo update-grub, but it still boots into gui. It does stop for some seconds on the terminal view to prompt for username, but then i openes gui.

    It looks like a later process is turning it into graphic after it has booted into terminal. Does this make sense?

    Trandre; Hey;

    Maybe ? ..What GUI did you install ? (DE) , and how are you set up to start it ? What config file(s) are at play here .

    I am always interested in the startup processes, and this too might be a learning adventure.

    Ubuntu 15.04+ needs to disable gui via systemd

    Run
    Code:
    sudo systemctl enable multi-user.target --force
    sudo systemctl set-default multi-user.target

    @sandyd; Great !

    Yeah, systemd is going to be different. This is not intuitive at all as to what it effects. Youch.
    Getting past time for homework.
