Question about ubuntu to lubuntu


So this was my first time doing a dual boot in my computer and i successfully did install ubuntu. However, in ubuntu i curiously downloaded lubuntu (since someone said that it was faster since lubuntu was feeling a bit slow) and unfortunately, I liked the layout of ubuntu at the end and got used to it. However, after rebooting it doesn't even let me choose the option of whether to start as ubuntu or lubuntu and it automatically starts as lubuntu which i hate T_T

I didn't put a login screen since it's my own computer and would like to know if there's a way to change back to ubuntu. Please! if you could explain step by step i'd be indefinitely graceful since I'm not a pro programmer or pro at ubuntu yet!

Thank you!

Try this :

from the 'start' menu in Lubuntu ( lower left K icon ) select 'Leave' then go up to 'Logout'. After it closes your session, you should be presented with a logon screen where you choose the user ( you or guest ).On this same screen there should be a selection box you can pull down to choose Ubuntu.

If not, there are other ways, but that is the easiest. Or, rather than muck things up ( as a newbie ) just reinstall Ubuntu ...

Good luck !

I Tried this but after logging out of my lubuntu section and logging back on on my user it automatically goes from ubuntu desktop to lubuntu desktop as if it was a default...
Also, I can't seem tosee the 'leave' button on the lower left k

The default for Grub in the different Ubuntu derivatives is to not show a menu when there is only one operating system. So did you install Lubuntu along with Ubuntu or did you overwrite the Ubuntu install with Ubuntu? If you had both on different partitions, you should see a menu. How did you install Lubuntu? If you boot Lubuntu and open a terminal, enter this command to show partition information: sudo fdisk -l(Lower Case Letter L in the command) and after entering your user password, get the output to post here.
