Disabling the GUI From Loading in Ubuntu

A quick reminder to myself.

To disable the GUI in Ubuntu (i.e. to run it as a headless VM), do the following:

sudo vim /etc/default/grub

Change: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="text"

save, then run: sudo update-grub and restart.

To enable gui again, just change from text to quiet splash.
