Non-GUI version of Raspbian?

Thu Dec 27, 2018 10:31 pm

Hi,
I was wondering if there’s a version of Raspbian that is text-only?
My reasons are:
1) It’s a cut-down installation that eliminates non-required stuff.
2) It will enable me to immerse myself into Linux and learn the ins and outs of CLI without distraction or temptation of a GUI.

I have a Pi 3B+

Thanks.

Yes, there is. It's called Raspbian Lite.

You could download it from https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/
