I cannot switch with Alt-F1, F2, etc to other shells...

Finally installed gentoo on my iBook G4 1.2, and have almost all my hardware working, and also X11 thanks to this Xorgautoconfig. But after I did

Quote:
# emerge pmud
# emerge pbbuttonsd
# rc-update add pmud default
# rc-update add pbbuttonsd default


And changed the pbbuttonsd according to the FAQ

Quote:
Note: You should edit /etc/pbbuttonsd.conf to better suit your needs. The behaviour of the Fx-keys can be controlled here as well as many sleep options. To switch the Fx-keys to the OSX behaviour, set KBDMode to fkeyslast. You can turn off touchpad tapping by setting TPMode to notap. Many other options are available, see man pbbuttonsd.conf for details.


But after a reboot I cannot switch with Alt-F1, F2, etc to other shells anymore. Is this related to what I did in the above? Or is it something else? Thanks.

Probably the problem is the pbbuttons configuration:

try: ctrl+alt+fn+F1 , ctrl+alt+fn+F2 and alt+fn+F1

If you want to change edit pbbuttons conf file ore just use powerprefs under X.

Ok. thanks. it is solved now. I emergeg powerprefs and did a change at keyboard mode: from Funcion keys with FN-keys to Hotkeys with FN-keys.

Now if I use alt it switches in the Window Manager, and with control-alt it switches in the console. Thanks
