Ubuntu 11.04 or 12.10 in text mode only

I wanted to run Ubuntu in text only mode as a test machine . If you want to do the same, change the following in /etc/default/grub file

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

to:

# GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="text"

Then run update the grub and reboot as shown below

$ sudo update-grub
$ sudo reboot
