The number of screens on a system depends upon the amount of memory in the computer. The system displays the number of enabled screens during the boot process.
To move to any screen from any other screen, enter:
<Alt><Fn> or <Alt><Ctrl><Fn> or
<Alt><Fn> or <Alt><Ctrl><Fn> (screens 1-12)
<Alt><Shift><Fn> or <Alt><Ctrl><Shift><Fn> (screens 11-16, 7-12)
where n is the number of one of the ``F'' function keys on the
primary monitor keyboard.
selects tty02, and all output in that device's screen buffer is displayed on the monitor screen.
The second form (using the <Shift> key) permits access to screens 11 and 12 on keyboards that have only ten function keys. It is possible to configure the kernel for up to 12 screens.
The function key combinations used to display the various screens are defined in the keyboard mapping file. The /usr/lib/keyboard/keys or other mapkey(M) file can be modified to allow different key combinations to change multiscreens. Use the mapkey utility to create a new keyboard map.
Note that the keystrokes given here are the default, but your keyboard may be different. If so, see keyboard(M) for the appropriate substitutes. Also, any key can be programmed to generate the screen switching sequences by using the mapkey utility.
