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

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

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