Sometimes I want to run a second X server (usually because I'm running a game or other app which might mess up my screen layout). For this I use simply
startx -- :1.
.xinitrc is set up to launch fluxbox in that new X server (using
It used to be that after starting the second server I could switch between the two using
Ctrl+Alt+F8. However, lately it seems that in the second (fluxbox) server none of the
Ctrl+Alt+Fn keys have any effect. The only way to get out is to exit fluxbox entirely, at which point I am returned to the enlightenment desktop (where virtual desktop switching works as expected).
Any ideas as to why virtual desktop switching might not work in the second X server?
