This should be a simple question:

  • Host OS: Arch Linux
  • Guest OS: Arch Linux (GNOME)

How can I send Ctrl+Alt+F1 to my Guest Linux OS?

If you are at the console, you can also use chvt n (where n is from your Ctrl + Alt + Fn). Using that command in a GUI (e.g. tty7) requires root privileges to get a console fd. –  Lekensteyn Feb 8 '13 at 18:45

If host key bind to Alt it doesn't work. Go to File => Preferences and rebind to Right Ctrl!! –  gavenkoa Dec 28 '13 at 18:56
