Which addresses this (although it isn't *quite* clear whether you use Alt -Fx for X window switching or not):
There are normally 6 virtual terminals in Linux, available by using Alt-F1 through Alt-F6. Each one can be logged in as a different user. There are normally 6 terminals available in X also, F7 through F12. The first X session will be on F7 (if on a local terminal), the second on F8, and so forth. If an X session is started from F1 and you also have an active session on F2, you can type Ctrl-Alt-F2 to go from the X session to the virtual console on F2. Also to get back to your X session, you can type Ctrl-Alt-F7. This example assumes that your terminals are setup in the standard manner with 6 virtual terminals that spawn the getty program available. You can check your setup by checking your /etc/inittab file. You should have lines like the following in your file.
See the section on init for further information on this file.
My question is this: Would I have to login as user A, startx, then switch to another virtual login prompt, login as user B and startx before I could switch between X terminals?
I guess this is a newbie question, but seeing as it's here now I'm not going to multi-post....
Could someone clarify the steps to take to be able to do this, please?
Thanks in advance.
