So, I successfully got Ubuntu installed for the first time, but on each start up had to type and enter the noveau.modeset = 0. is there a way to disable whats causing me to need to do this or a detailed tutorial on writing some script to handle it for me? I'm pretty new to ubunt, but had to reinstall after downloading a nividia driver and being unable to access any terminal even with shift and e and other methods I looked up.

  • Why not add it to the bootloader configuration? Mar 13 '18 at 23:26
  • Sweet man! That appears to have worked. If you submit as an answer I'll accept it.

  • I have no idea what that involves on Ubuntu, so it would not be appropriate for me to do so. Mar 14 '18 at 1:08

You can add the boot option to the default used by your boot loader, by adding it to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT value in /etc/default/grub. Once you’ve done that, run sudo update-grub to update your configuration.
