Hello, newest Debian for A20 works ok but does anyone know what would be the best solution to disable graphical UI to load automatically on startup?  I would like to have an option to start shell only.


If I remember, it is started from /root/.bashrc. Simply remove the line where the call is made.



Hello, I'm looking for the same but using A13

using Debian R8 image, at boot, A13 start allready loged with "olimex" user an GUI

I'd like just tty prompt

looked for .bashrc at /root/.bashrc and references to lightdm and startx are commented out

#/etc/init.d/lightdm start

please any advice on getting this is appreciated, thanks in advance


/etc/X11/default-display-manager ; replace only line with /usr/bin/true

you can always start login manager by typing slim into console later



thank you, it work

on the way to get what I want, before read your post, I also changed /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf commenting the line


with this I just get non autologin

your answer complete the task, thank you
