You may install Ubuntu Server version. It's text mode default(with no X
server installed). and if you have installed other version of Ubuntu and do
not want to reinstall, just keep it, you do not have to remove the X-server
and something others.
you can start into text mode by change the grub file.
vim /etc/default/grub #you can use some others instead of vim
look at this line
and replace "splash" with text
if you really want to remove ubuntu-desktop. It may not have a good way for
apt-get purge *xorg*
I've tried this command(similar) before, but I don't think it is a purge
programs in X mode will not be removed, but they could not start anymore.
