Save it in a script. I have an alias in my ~/.bashrc with this
Yesterday I was working on my own extension for gnome and my computer froze. I could switch to other virtual consoles using Alt+Ctrl+F(2) but I couldn't figure out how to restart gdm. On debian I could do a "service restart gdm3", but couldn't find the equivalent systemd command. I tried "systemctl restart graphical.target" but with no luck I finally had to restart my system(not an issue coz my system boots in like 6 seconds thanks to systemd )
I love the whole concept of systemd and the only thing that would make it better is more pratical documentation.
(PS: It's my first post on any linux forum!!)

Thanks for replying there is no gdm service. The only thing remotely related to GUI is graphical.target. The output of your command is :
systemctl restart gdm.service
[sudo] password for tushar:
Failed to issue method call: Unit gdm.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status gdm.service' for details.
Thanks....I'm not at the computer right now....will try it when I'm back.....I don't need it for the extension, I was just working on one and it froze up my system....I'm writing an extension to show a simple workspace switcher without going into overlay mode (if anyone is interested)
