How To Switch Vts In Pdaxrom?
« on: October 03, 2005, 12:34:56 pm »
I'd like to use multiple VTs, which keys combination is used in pdaXrom to switch between virtual terminals?

is Ctl+Alt+Left/Right what your talking about?
I think it's in the FAQ

No, VT is a terminal, not screen.

chvt, I believe. However, before you switch VTs, make sure you're plugged into AC, or that your power settings won't make the screen blank after a few minutes.

Well, of course chvt would work, but I was wondering if any key or keys combination is mapped to do that?

fix inittab like this, than fn+left/right will work in clean console (not X11)

Sash,

Where can I get a copy of keymap that is used in pdaxrom's kernel?

Could it be possible to change xmodmap file to have fn+left/right change VTs in X too?

How do I switch back to X?
