    199199      The X session starts on the first unused virtual terminal, normally vt7.
    200       You can switch to a vtn (n=1, 2, ...) simultaneously pressing the keys
    201       Ctrl-Alt-Fn. To switch back to the X session, normally started at vt7,
    202       use Ctrl-Alt-F7. If started from vt1 (the usual case), you will see many
    203       messages there, including X starting messages, applications automatically
    204       started with the session, and eventually, some warning and error
    205       messages. You may prefer to redirect those messages to a log file, which
    206       not only will keep vt1 uncluttered, but also can be used for debug
    207       purposes. This can be done starting X with:

     207      prefer to redirect those messages to a log file, which not only will keep
     208      the initial vt uncluttered, but can also be used for debug purposes. This

    213       You may wish to drop consolekit and/or dbus-launch, e.g., just using
    214       startlxde in .~/.xinitrc, but some functionalities such as mount/umount
    215       file systems from a file manager will not be possible, or the reboot
    216       option will be absent or not functioning, between other problems.

    219     <para>
    220       Because X is (normally) on vt7, when you shutdown the vt is switched back
    221       to that one where the command starting it was executed. In this case, if
    222       you wish to see the shutdown messages, simultaneously press keys Alt-F7,
    223       because normally those messages appear on the vt where X was running.

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