Move XFree86 button


How do I move my XFree86 button from Ctrl-Alt-F7 to something else? I changed my konsoles to how I like them on my "big machine" and I want to move my button to go into XFree86 over. I bet it's in the same place as where I changed my konsoles (can't think of where that is right off hand, but I used to know it).

maybe check this..sounds like you'll have to remap the keys to what you want:
http://www.hack.gr/linux/gazette/iss...-consoles.html
or you can check the keyboard and console howto

Look at /etc/inittab

More specifically, the section with those
entries :)
Code:
# These are the standard console login getties in multiuser mode:
c1:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty1 linux
c2:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty2 linux
c3:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty3 linux
c4:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty4 linux
c5:1235:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty5 linux
c6:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty6 linux
My wild guess would be that changing the
tty bits towards the end around should do
the trick ...

Cheers,
Tink

That's the file! inittab I looked in there on my "big machine" which runs X and I don't see a line that don't have a tty at the end. I erased the last three lines that you posted and now have konsoles on F1-F3, like I want. I now want to move my X to F4 but haven't seen a line for that yet.
