End Session Command


Quick question:

What is the command I would use to end the current GUI session and go back to the console?

Thanks!!

there isn't going to be a single command for it... you would kill the X process i guess "kill $(pidof X)" for example. alternatively, zap your server with Ctrl+Alt+Backspace. or just log out nicely.

you can of course reach a console without quitting X, just hit Ctrl+Alt+F1 to F6
