Assume that you're running another UNIX-like OS within Linux. And now, you want to switch virtual terminals *within* that guest operating system (say OpenBSD - which I'm currently using). The problem is that when I use the Ctrl+Alt+Function key it switches the terminal in the host operating system.
Is there a workaround to map a different key to allow switching of virtual terminals within the guest operating system?
Switching between text consoles in a Linux virtual machine
When the CTRL + ALT + F1 key combination is used to switch to another text console (terminal) on a Linux virtual machine, the host switches to a text console instead of the guest.
The CTRL + ALT combination is used by VMware to direct the keyboard input to the host.
Press CTRL + ALT + Space , press the F1 key (or desired Function key) while still holding down CTRL + ALT .
