Once Ubuntu is installed, what's next? Learn how to log into a text console and a graphical interface.
- [Instructor] When your system starts up,…and really, all the time you're using your system directly,…you have a choice of two different modes:…the graphical mode,…if you have a desktop environment installed,…and a text mode.…What we're seeing when we look at the GUI…is called a screen, and in the text mode…it's called a console.…A console is a little bit different from a terminal,…in that a console is considered to be directly…attached to a machine, like what you'd see…when you're looking at the machine's physical display.…But a terminal can come in from a remote connection,…or it can be started up inside the console.…
But whichever mode you're using,…it's still really a console.…Some other operating systems call their log viewer a console…which can be confusing.…Here on Linux, you'll have six consoles…available by default.…The GUI typically becomes number seven…if it's installed and running.…The text consoles are given the designations…tty1 through tty6,…and the GUI one is tty7, as you might expect.…There's space for more consoles, usually up to 12.…
