I'm not sure. This forum mainly focuses on Windows-based problems. We'll help you while you can, but I'd personally suggest that you ask at www.ubuntuforums.org . Almost every Ubuntu question I've had has been covered there, even questions specific to my laptop model. It's a great resource and a great community. Sorry I couldn't help you, and definitely check back to see if others can.

@blastph3my: Do you mean the HTG forums as a whole are mostly Windows questions? As this forum on HTG is for Linux questions.

@azizlp: Why do you want to change the default run level? It is my understanding that most of the time one doesn't need to mess with run levels in Ubuntu.

I did a few Google searches and found the following page https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/11131 which appears to have an answer to your question.
I'm not 100% sure though as I don't use Ubuntu.
