Postby Denbrough on Mon Apr 21, 2008 3:18 am

Good morning everybody,

I discover this beautiful distribution and installed it. All means works fine, i install the nvidia drivers, awn manager and compiz-fussion without problems. But before i discover, when change session to do something in text mode, all screen in black. I can't do anything in text mode, only works terminal in X windows and yakuake terminal. Someone knows how repair it?

Thank you.

What do you mean with "text mode"? A pure CLI = Command LIne environment?
Ctrl+alt+F1 (up to F6) gives you that and ctrl+alt+F7 brings you back into the X environment
Occasionally I have met the problem that ctrl+alt+F7 does not work (it has happened to me)
If this does not work I suspect keyboard error....
You could have the wrong keyboard layout
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

I refer when I working in x windows and change to other session, Ctrol Alt F1 o F2 ... , all sessions are black except the x windows session, this works fine. For example, i need stop de gdm and need do : sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop, to do this command must go to another session for stop gdm, i can't do it xDD because all are black >_<
