149 The X session starts on the first unused virtual terminal, normally vt7.
150 You can switch to another vt<emphasis>n</emphasis> simultaneously
151 pressing the keys Ctrl-Alt-F<emphasis>n</emphasis>
152 (<emphasis>n</emphasis>=1, 2, ...). To switch back to the X session,
153 normally started at vt7, use Ctrl-Alt-F7. The vt where the command
154 <command>startx</command> was executed will display many messages,
155 including X starting messages, applications automatically started with
156 the session, and eventually, some warning and error messages. You may
157 prefer to redirect those messages to a log file, which not only will keep
158 the initial vt uncluttered, but can also be used for debug purposes. This
159 can be done starting X with:

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

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