Might be a way to put it in an init level as a startup too.

There should be a way to switch out of level 5 with hot keys. Like ctrl alt 1 or F1 or such.

Ctrl-Alt-F1/2/3/4/5/6 does not switch you out of any runlevel. It simply switches you to a virtual tty, where the X server is (typically) on tty7 when in runlevel 5. You have to actually issue the command init <runlevel> to switch runlevels.

If you can't find that you may not be using the same desktop as kbp; for the Xfce desktop it is Menu >> Settings >> Session and Startup >> Application Autostart.

BTW, this isn't really a "run level 5" thing, it's a "desktop session initialisation" thing.

In that case, maybe recommend a DE-neutral solution by adding an xterm session to your .xinitrc?
