  • Linux Lite: 5.2 64bit

  • CPU: Intel i3 2.53 GHz

  • MEMORY: 3Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Intel HD Graphics (around 1 GB)
Hi, I am a linux newbie. I was switching between workspaces in linux lite 5.2. I generally do that by Ctrl+Alt+Right/Left Arrow Keys but this time I was pressing Ctrl+F1/F2. By mistake I pressed Ctrl+Shift+F1 or Ctrl+Shift+F2. A window opened with black screen that reads:

Linux Lite 5.2 LTS parmanand-Inspiron-N4010 tty2
parmanand-Inspiron-N4010 login: _

Is this root user login? If yes, then how can I close this window without logging in as root?

Edit: Never mind. This black screen is a tty virtual console. I got back to my graphical desktop by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F7.

unfortunately upgrading systemd is not an option, as a work around I wrote a script to read the logfile, split it into 2000 bytes chunks and prefix it with a UUID
