Hope I can explain myself clearly , I am no expert at linux and english is not my native language.
When I am in Xfce I press ctrol+alt+F? but it does not switch to console out of X. I have try other key conbinations with no avail.
How do I switch to console out of X without closing Xfce and Xorg?
You might want to try alt+F? to see if that one works
I had this problem briefly after upgrading to xorg 7. If you have also upgraded, open /etc/X11/xorg.conf in an editor, look for the "Input Device" section for your keyboard, and change this:
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
FYI - this worked for me and various others, but not for everyone who reported this problem.
The problem was with the following line in /etc/X11/xorg.cong
Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys" <-- This works
I original set:
Option "XkbVariant" "ar"
When asked by xorgconfig about this option I thought it was asking for some keyboar language alternative or something, so I set "ar" for Argentina
