hi there

i would like to boot BackBox only to console, so I changed /etc/default/grub line to "quiet text" and I update-grub
i restarted PC, logged as root and startx

after that I don't see all BackBox menu
All I see is default menu from XFCE, without BackBox-Auditing, ...

I tried god knows what.
I reinstalled my PC several times
Reinstall all BackBox apps, BackBox-menu ... ...

Finally I gave up and come here for help.
How can i have all BackBox menu when i boot from text/console ?

Hi,

Why you did that if in the end you will run startx? If you want to get Debian style boot screen then just:

sudo nano /etc/default/grub

Then add # like this,

#grub_hidden_timeout=0 ....
#grub_hidden_timeout_quit=....

Save and close, then:

update-grub

You lose menu because you don't start session from X. Check: https://forum.backbox.org/software-support/'applications-menu'-not-displaying-'auditing'-apps/ as well.



Don't ask, read : http://wiki.backbox.org
or just run sudo rm -rf /*

There is no easy answer to that question, maybe you can play with some scripting, but i don't see how this can work. You need root privileges to set iptables routing etc.. Check:

But you will need more skills.
