taken to graphical logon menu when use 'control alt backspace'
Very much a newbie and a bit lost.
I wish to work on occasions outside of Xwindows.
When I attempt to use 'control alt backspace' instead of giving me a command line I get the graphical login screen.
The session options do not give me an option of the ordinary command prompt amongst the choices of session so can't start at command prompt at startup.
I am using linux mint cassandra on pc with fx5200nvidia card, and amd sempron 64 bit 2800 processor.
Thanks for any help.
