I have a PC I am dedicating as a server for Minecraft. It is running Ubuntu Server 20.04.2
Im fine using command line but I don't like only having one space to work. My solution is startx
I have used startx in the past and I enjoy using it. Black background that I can have multiple terminals open without pulling too many resources for graphics.
Ive been using this as a reference: https://askubuntu.com/questions/53822/how-do-you-run-ubuntu-server-with-a-gui
Minimal GUI: sudo apt install xorg sudo apt install --no-install-recommends openbox Run the command startx and openbox will start (you can open a terminal there and run any application you want)"
It has worked before with Ubuntu Server 20.04.1 but stopped working recently
When I start the server I get a GUI login screen instead of a command line and when I log in I have a whole Gui Desktop instead of a command line.
- I want to boot up the system and be greeted by a command line login
- When logged in I want it to stay in a command line until I type "startx"
- When typing "startx" I want startx to run the startx GUI
It has worked before with these instructions but won't work now. What do I need to do?
