    usage: chvt N

    Change to virtual terminal number N. (This only works in text mode.)

    Virtual terminals are the Linux VGA text mode displays, ordinarily
    switched between via alt-F1, alt-F2, etc. Use ctrl-alt-F1 to switch
    from X to a virtual terminal, and alt-F6 (or F7, or F8) to get back.
