I am using Ubuntu Desktop 13.10 amd64 for iMac. When the system boots up, lightdm loads gnome and hence occupies the first virtual terminal (tty1). This is the default behavior after installation.

The problem is, I like to use tty1 and hence I want to make lightdm uses tty6 instead of tty1, so that tty1 is unoccupied. How to do this ..?
