But if it works for another user, we don't need to reinstall anything. It's a
setting in your home folder, so...

First of all, a virtual terminal is a full-screen, text-mode interface - like
DOS was, if you're familiar with that. They're available at any time by
pressing ctrl+alt+F? where F? is the buttons F1 through F6. You can switch to
those and then back to the GUI with ctrl+alt+F7. In fact, when you start new
sessions without closing the first instance, they start at ctrl+alt+F8 and go
upward with each session.
In any case, I'll send you a personal email with step by step instructions to
see if we can get this thing working.
