I would like to know what command launches tty from the command-line. I would like to know as I am using Plasma 5 and am fiddling around with my keyboard shortcuts and if I know what launches tty from the command-line I should be able to create a custom shortcut for it for Plasma 5.

  • Are you looking for Ctrl+F1? – terdon Sep 26 '15 at 17:53
  • Nope, I wanted the command-line command, not the keyboard command. I knew the keyboard shortcut for it, for me it is Ctrl+Alt+F1. – BH2017 Sep 26 '15 at 17:57

This requires sudo priviledges:

sudo chvt 1
