My Linux Mint froze - no keyboard/mouse inputs visible, nothing after I accidentally pressed either Ctrl+Alt+F10 or Ctrl+shift+Alt+F10. I used the power button on my laptop to reboot (Restart fixes 90% of computer issues). It rebooted into the login screen, but 4 things were off.
- My external monitor didn't have the login on it, just the background (it usually does as it is the primary monitor)
- The password input cursor was blinking slower than usual
- The mouse cursor wasn't moving
- The moment I press ANY key or move my mouse it completely freezes
I have googled around and fount that in Ubuntu Ctrl+Alt+F10 switches terminals, and Ctrl+Alt+F2 should work to fix it. It didn't.
What happened and how do I fix it?
