  FYI, Debian and (IIRC) Ubuntu don't use runlevel 5 normally.  They
normally boot to runlevel 2, and use a service to start/stop an X
display manager.  So, I think the equivalent command would be:

        /etc/init.d/gdm start

  I could be wrong, this is from memory, and I haven't used Ubuntu in
a while, either.  IIRC, Ubuntu replaced the standard SysV init with
some new thing, and it may not even have initscripts anymore.
