To start Ubuntu in normal mode, you will need to boot your computer and wait for the login screen to appear. If you are presented with a login screen, enter your username and password and press Enter or Return to log in. If you are not presented with a login screen, your computer may be set to automatically log you in. In this case, you can simply wait for the desktop to appear.

If you are having trouble logging in to your account, or if you are unable to access the desktop, there are a few other things you can try:

  1. Try rebooting your computer and see if that helps.
  2. If you are presented with a login screen but your password is not accepted, try resetting your password by following the prompts on the screen.
  3. If you are presented with a login screen but your username is not recognized, try logging in with a different account or creating a new account.
  4. If you are not presented with a login screen and your computer is stuck on a splash screen or an error message, try pressing the Esc key or one of the function keys (F1, F2, etc.) to access the boot menu or BIOS settings. From here, you may be able to troubleshoot any issues or select the option to boot into normal mode.
  5. If none of these steps help, you may need to boot from a live CD or USB drive and try to repair your system or reinstall Ubuntu.

  1. Start your computer and wait for the GRUB menu to appear. This menu usually shows up after your computer's BIOS/UEFI screen.
  2. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the desired Ubuntu entry in the GRUB menu.
  3. Press the "E" key on your keyboard to edit the selected entry.
  4. You will see a screen with several lines of text. Look for a line that starts with "linux" or "linuxefi". At the end of this line, remove any "quiet" or "splash" options.
  5. Press Ctrl + X or F10 to boot into Ubuntu with the modified settings.
  6. Now, Ubuntu should boot into normal mode.

If you've made changes to the GRUB configuration and want to make them permanent, you can modify the /etc/default/grub file by following these steps:

  1. Open a terminal by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T.
  2. Type the following command and press Enter to open the grub configuration file in a text editor: sudo nano /etc/default/grub
  3. You will see a file with several lines. Find the line that starts with "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT" and modify it according to your needs. Remove any "quiet" or "splash" options. For example, if the line is: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" You can change it to: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="" Alternatively, you can add any specific parameters you want.
  4. Save the file by pressing Ctrl + X, then Y, and finally Enter.
  5. Update GRUB by running the following command: sudo update-grub
  6. Reboot your computer to apply the changes.

After completing these steps, your Ubuntu system should always boot into normal mode by default.
