Reset the user by moving everything in /home/faultyuser to a backup directory like this: mkdir /home/faultyuser/BACKUP mv /home/faultyuser/* /home/faultyuser/BACKUP mv /home/faultyuser/.* /home/faultyuser/BACKUP cp -v /etc/skel/.[a-z]* /home/faultyuser/ chown faultyuser:faultyuser /home/faultyuser/.* and try to login. When this works, move all you need ...

2 shots: 1. Perhaps login as root is denied (that's the default setting on many systems and it is pretty reasonable). Did you tried with a different user? 2. Did you try sshing with ssh -Y?

I'm sorry, but this moment, the r128 is no longer supported by ATi (it's supported in Debian Squeeze, which is still under maintenance but very outdated). However, you can enable some hardware acceleration by using the open source driver xserver-xorg-video-r128 plus the non-free firmware r100_cp.bin contained in firmware-linux-nonfree package.

I've solved. I looked the log: backup framebuffer data, that it means that it changes framebuffer. I've thinked: "The framebuffer doesn't work maybe?". So I have try to change framebuffer using this: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Uvesafb and now it works. And I think this is also the only way, for ATI proprietary drivers, to really change TTY ...

ATI drivers are terrible on Linux. Try other driver versions, x and kernel too. Eventually it will work, but don't expect radeon to be stable at all. Everybody I know get continous X crashes or some artefacts, and performance is not better too.

Well, thanks to @Basile's comment, I learned a lot and came up with following working sample: #!/usr/bin/python3 import Xlib import Xlib.display disp = Xlib.display.Display() root = disp.screen().root NET_WM_NAME = disp.intern_atom('_NET_WM_NAME') NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW = disp.intern_atom('_NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW') ...

As has been mentioned, it's fairly straightforward to determine the kernel driver in use, but without the Xorg logs, it's a little more tricky to determine which userland X server driver is being used. For systems that have it, glxinfo can be used (although that will only give you general device information, not the actual driver name). glxinfo | grep ...

Only scaling wont help. I have yoga 2 pro with resolution 3200x1800 and external FHD monitor.

I had the same question/problem. Alt-LeftArrow and Alt-RightArrow didn't do anything for me. They just printed ^[[C and ^[[D on the screen. Mine ended up being Ctrl-Alt-F3. It varied depending on number of ttys that were configured in /etc/ttys. I had 2 uncommented ttys, so it was Ctrl-Alt-F3. When I uncommented another tty, it became Ctrl-Alt-F4.
