(this is a re-port from the Newbie Forum: original discussion. As no solution has turned up by now, i though i'd give it a try here...)
I have the following problem: I can't switch to a virtual console when loged into gnome (actually, i havn't tried from KDE).
Ctrl-Alt-F1, etc simply does nothing.
And yes i tried all the keys (F1-F6), pressing them long and firmly, tried multiple times, tried other combinations of modifiers, tried right side modifiers, etc. pp....
Is it possible this is turned off somewhere? Or is something seriously b0rken? How can I find out? Is there an alternative way to switch?
Oh, i nearly forgot:
I'm running Gnome 2.2.0 on a RedHat 9 System. The WM is metacity (gnome default). Keyboard-Layout is German-NoDeadKeys. I experience the same promlem on my Laptop (same distro).
thanx in advance...
