How do you add virtual text consoles to F1-F4?

Asked by kingneutron on 2016-03-29

By default, there appear to be no virtual getty consoles defined - in case X gets fouled up; how do we add these back in?

Hi

There was a bug in lightdm init script. We'll release a fixed package shortly, in the meantime you can fix it by editing /etc/init.d/lightdm and replacing:

start-stop-daemon --start --quiet $SSD_START_ARGS \

with:

start-stop-daemon --start --background --quiet $SSD_START_ARGS \

Regards

A fix is released, just upgrade lightdm to 1.16.4-0ubuntu1+bsd2 or later from ubuntuBSD archive.

This fix is included with efsd BETA3.

Can you help with this problem?
