    Problem / Noobyness in different sessions


    :)
    I have a little issue regarding the session

    I logued in a User and wanted to start another one...

    clicked new session...
    logued as Root

    when I wanted to switch from Root to User,

    Shift-alt-F1 (or something like that), and I get this

    SomeUser@localhost:
    i type in my user log into that...
    but how do I get my "GUI"???
    startx tells me that its already running...

    thanks in advance

    to start X then, type this: startx -- :1

    If you want to revert back to your old X session, press ctrl-alt-f7 (most likely)

    then the first session is f7, the second is f8 and f9 is the 3'rd one (usually, unless you did some special configuration).
