I'm on Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS Server. I'm new to linux so decided to install Gnome.
sudo apt-get install xorg gnome-core gnome-system-tools gnome-app-install
I still want to boot to command prompt.. So I tried to update the grub file.
I followed all the steps:
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
edit the grub see below: and after i did: sudo update-grub
after I rebooted, but still continue to boot to the gui...
# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
# For full documentation of the options in this file, see:
# info -f grub -n 'Simple configuration'
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
# Uncomment to enable BadRAM filtering, modify to suit your needs
# This works with Linux (no patch required) and with any kernel that obtains
# the memory map information from GRUB (GNU Mach, kernel of FreeBSD ...)
# Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)
# The resolution used on graphical terminal
# note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE
# you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'
# Uncomment if you don't want GRUB to pass "root=UUID=xxx" parameter to Linux
# Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries
# Uncomment to get a beep at grub start
