I set up the two terminals. I ran dmesg which gave me the following
murphy@murphy-dual-boot:~$ dmesg |tail -f

I then hit return in the other terminal. It gave me the following:
murphy@murphy-dual-boot:~$ sudo X -configure
Fatal server error:

and start again.

ddxSigGiveUp: Closing log
I hit Ctrl/Alt/Backspace(this is the command to restart X, correct? It is checked in my keyboard layout)
Nothing happened. I tried several times. Have I made a mistake?
Nothing seemed to change.
