hi Singh Sahib,

console$ export DISPLAY=localhost:1
console$ xstart --:1 &

This should start a new xserver which can be accessed via Alt+Ctrl+F8 , if your other xserver was on F7. Otherwise just try the next Fx button.

let me know if this works or not. bye

dorian is correct. The spaces are crucial.

@rsingh: did it work now?

p.s. I am also a desi, and your name tells about your origin, too
