128 The X session starts on the first unused virtual terminal, normally vt7.
129 You can switch to another vt<emphasis>n</emphasis> simultaneously
130 pressing the keys Ctrl-Alt-F<emphasis>n</emphasis>
131 (<emphasis>n</emphasis>=1, 2, ...). To switch back to the X session,
132 normally started at vt7, use Ctrl-Alt-F7. The vt where the command
133 <command>startx</command> was executed will display many messages,
134 including X starting messages, applications automatically started with
135 the session, and eventually, some warning and error messages. You may
136 prefer to redirect those messages to a log file, which not only will keep
137 the initial vt uncluttered, but can also be used for debug purposes. This
138 can be done starting X with:

145 You may wish to drop consolekit and/or dbus-launch, e.g., just using
146 startlxqt in ~/.xinitrc. However some capabilities such as mounting or
147 umounting file systems from a file manager will not be possible, or the
148 reboot option will be absent or inoperative, among other problems.

153 When shutting down or rebooting, the shutdown messages appear on the vt
154 where X was running. If you wish to see those messages, simultaneously
155 press keys Alt-F7 (assuming that X was running on vt7).
