Cannot switch between Virtual terminals and back
 
I just upgraded to Mint 13 - KDE x64

I am unable to switch to ttys by using the Ctrl + Alt + F1 .. F6 keys. The gettys are running and I can switch to the terminals with the sudo chvt 1 command.

I have browsed to quite a few topics and have not reached a solution that works. I even reinstalled grub with terminal=console. Once I make a selection at the boot menu, I do not see any boot messages - just KDE starting after a few seconds.

How do I fix this?

I managed to fix it. http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/virtua...l-not-working/ was a great help.

I entered the `kcmshell4 kcm_keyboard` > advanced tab > Miscellaneus compatibility option > and unchecked the special keys (ctrl + alt + <key>) handled in a server. Things went in place! I still would like to know where this setting is stored in configuration files.
