I'm using arch linux with mate-desktop. Whenever I press ctrl+alt+fk, where k=2,...,9 I switch to a tty. However when I want to return I do ctrl+alt+f1which results in a system crash. After that I can't switch tty, and pressing CAPS LOCK doesn't change the led. I am forced to shutdown by holding the power button and reboot. No message about it appears when I do journalctl either. How to further investigate and fix this?
