Starting Ubuntu Xubuntu without the GUI

For Ubuntu 11.10 and higher

Edit /etc/default/grub

vi /etc/default/grub

Find out this line:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

Change it to:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="text"


Update Grub:

sudo update-grub


Please notice, you do NOT need to remove / disable lightdm upstart conf, it already does that for you.

lightdm.conf

# Check kernel command-line for inhibitors, unless we are being called
# manually
for ARG in $(cat /proc/cmdline); do
if [ "$ARG" = "text" ]; then
plymouth quit || :
stop
exit 0
fi
done


You will still be able to use X by typing startx after you logged in.
