I want to disable GUI at boot time. I followed these steps:

  1. sudo nano /etc/default/grub
  2. Find out this line:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

  1. Change it to:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="text"

  1. Update Grub:

sudo update-grub

  1. Reboot

but nothing happened! I can access GUI remotely using xrdp. What I'm missing here?

  • If you want to disable splash screen, you should delete quiet splash and leave "". askubuntu.com/questions/33416/… – desgua May 4 '14 at 21:34

May be you make a mistake. You should put the option "text" at GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" (not to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="") (1)

  • i run this command but nothing changed :( – Shadin May 4 '14 at 21:53

  • Thanks! turns out that remote access (xrdp) still use GUI even if it's disabled! – Shadin May 5 '14 at 7:47
  • So you have to uninstall it? – desgua May 5 '14 at 10:39
