I'm trying to boot my Trisquel GNU/Linux distro directly from text mode, as I don't want to load the GUI if it's not necessary. I would like to work in tty1 until I type startx, which would start all the graphical stuff.

Is there a way to do it? I used to have Musix, and it worked fine, but it was a default config.


Distro: Trisquel 7.0 GUI: GNOME 3.8.4

    Did you search the Trisquel forums? Besides, trisquel 7 is based on Ubuntu 14.04, so most of the advice for Ubuntu 14.04 is valid for Trisquel. – kba Feb 20 '16 at 14:46
  • Have a look at this - since Trisquel is a second-generation Debian derivative, it could be all you need. – Fiximan Feb 20 '16 at 14:50
