    Default Switching sessions in a VM


    Using Ctrl+Alt+Fx I can normally switch screens (seesions) on the host.
    How can I accomplish the same in a VM started with QEMU, using KVM and
    not using a graphic shell?

    Humm, not sure how the VM affects it but without the graphical
    environment I find Alt+Fx will switch me between sessions. Even with
    the graphical environment loaded it's only to get off of the graphical
    F7 session that needs Ctrl+Alt+Fx. After that it's just Alt+Fx

    Or have I totally missed the point on this?

    yu210148: Thanks, that was the solution, just using Alt+Fx instead of
    Ctrl+Alt+Fx. I tried the Ctrl+Alt+Shift combination also - using the
    -alt-grab switch - without result also.

    One thing need to be mentioned: using the '-usbdevice tablet' and just
    positioning it over the VM window does NOT work. You must click inside
    the VM window or else Alt+Fx is not seen/processed.

    Thanks, Frans.
