Im trying to start new xserver in terminal ctrl+alt+f1, it starts works normally, but when i switch to ctrl+alt+f7 and then back to ctrl+alt+f1 i can see only console but no gui. How to show previously started xserver?

Try
Code: Select all
startx


If it comes up with an error saying it's already in use or something like that then try

Code: Select all
sudo service mdm stop


followed by

Code: Select all
sudo service mdm start


You might need to enter

Code: Select all
startx


again after, I can't quite remember.



Hope that helps.
