    You do not need CTRL use ALT + F1-F2-F3 – Vivian Maya Oct 27 '14 at 1:52

  • Open terminal emulator (xterm or similar), run chvt 1 and report the result. – jimmij Oct 27 '14 at 2:10
  • # chvt 1 chvt: Command not found. – Patterson Oct 27 '14 at 2:32
  • @jimmij from the tags, it looks like he is using X11 and KDE. If I recall, you need to flip to tty7...I don't have a box in front of me to check. If nothing else, <kbd>CTRL</kbd>+<kbd>Backspace</kbd>+<kbd>Backspace</kbd> should work, but it'll kill the X server and may cause all unsaved data to be lost. – SailorCire Oct 27 '14 at 13:55
