I think I'm being a bit dumb: what's the point of enabling vtdaemon when it doesn't do anything useful without further config? That is, what's the intention of vtdaemon enabled, hotkeys==false? Worse, if you accidentally switch without setting hotkeys, then you've killed your machine - with no way to switch back, a hard reboot is needed. > There still be some flaws and imperfections, so if you want to us > VT feature now, please set options/hotkeys true.
