This question already has an answer here:
When I press
Ctrl + Alt + F1 the desktop environment disappears and a terminal window appears. Pressing
Ctrl + Alt + F7 brings me back to DE.
This terminal is useful when the DE hangs for some reason and I need to kill a process or something.
However the keyboard typing speed in this terminal is so fast that its almost unusable.
Attempting to type
sudo ps -ef | grep virtualbox often gets me
suuudo pss -ef || grep virtuaalbox
I have two questions -
- What terminal is this? Is it Xterm?
- Could I reduce the keystroke speed to a more usable value, as in gnome-terminal?
