I have not tried this, so, try at your own risk...
If you go into the /etc/rc3.d directory, and move S30gdm to K30gdm
Then you create a new file in /etc called inittab and add one line to it:
This SHOULD work. Like I said, never tried it. Deleting the inittab, or renaming it, will bring back the full desktop in case of trouble.

I did a regular Xubuntu install a while ago but I'm turning it into a
server and would like to get rid of the GUI (XFCE), login manager, etc.
Is there a simple way to do this? I remember a while back that I could
just do apt-get remove ubuntu-desktop but either that doesn't work in
Xubuntu or it's no longer the right way to do it.
Thanks for any help you can offer,
