Workspaces X and text - how to switch between them. VMware
I have VMware 5.5 and am trying to install VMware tools on an Ubuntu 7.10 guest.
What I read indicates you can't install them in X.
I also read you could switch out of X into a text workspace to install them there. The keys to do this in this case are CTRL-ALT SPACE, then let go of space only, and press an FKey. You get a logon at a text screen.
eg. F1 gets tty1
But unfortunately, I have no description of how to return to X
Do you know how, what keystroke sequence, or am I completely out of X and have to reboot, and if so how to I do that from one of these text workspaces.
(I'm not currently logged in at one of them).
