There are a lot of posts on how to stop gnome desktop in ubuntu. However, on 17.10, I am not able to do that!
As you can see there is no service named
gdm has no effect.
mahmood@orca2:~$ sudo service lightdm stop Failed to stop lightdm.service: Unit lightdm.service not loaded. mahmood@orca2:~$ sudo service gdm stop mahmood@orca2:~$ lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 17.10 Release: 17.10 Codename: artful
I also tried to edit the grub option by removing
quiet splash $vt_handoff and insert
single. Still I see gnome desktop!
