I had a similar issue with my GTX 750 Ti. It's something to do with the drivers, not totally sure what exactly, but adding the GRUB flag nomodeset got me a TTY. However, it messed up my GUI at the same time, so this solution may not work for everyone. Solution - Add the nomodeset GRUB flag: Open a terminal Ctrl+Alt+T Enter sudo nano /etc/default/grub - ...

This question has been answered here. To summarize it: First, there are no "two users" - there is one, who is logged in multiple times. And, as muru said, :0 normally refers to a log in via some graphical interface. Using "w" will tell you which interface logging into your system.

This is a known problem with FGLRX. To fix it, you need to edit your boot settings. In a terminal, run: hwinfo --framebuffer ## Depreciated, use videoinfo instead! It should spit out a lot of numbers. Choose the resolution that you want (usually the highest). Remember the corresponding code! Now, reboot. In the GRUB menu, edit the entry and add ...
