You can use ttyrec sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ttyrec http://0xcc.net/ttyrec/index.html.en There are a a few options, look for ttyrec -u Which allows you to record to a zip file you can later unzip and should be able to play in a regular terminal later that you can easily take a screenshot of.

Sure, with dosbox; enable the universe repository in Software & Updates then search it within Ubuntu Software Center, or run this command in a Terminal: sudo apt-get install dosbox Then switch to a TTY with, e.g. Ctrl+Alt+F1 and run it with this command: dosbox

Reinstalling Unity would be sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop but I don't know if this will help. Of course you can access and copy your files from the TTY - you can do everything there if you don't mind a little typing... You know the directory and file name of your document? Super! Just run the following command to copy it wherever you ...

Sudo apt-get install, but i had something like you have now in the past. Did it happened while you where running a update and the screen locked by automatic screenlocker? That was what happened to me, and had the same problem, but i did run the update again in tty and problem was solved. Maybe it works also with you.

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xen-3.1/+bug/1167281 "stdin: is not a tty" due to "mesg n" instead of "tty -s && mesg n" in .profil Try the said method and see if it helps. The difference is, in case your problem is also caused by the "mesg n' in yout ptogilt,

pkill worked but seemed a little extreme to me. If I had other stuff going on in other tty sessions it would kill those too. Another solution is: sudo restart lightdm A great strength of Linux is that there are always multiple ways to achieve the same task.

That's because you're probably typing the wrong username: remember that upon user's creation, if the full name provided it's two words long and it contains uppercases (e.g. "John Smith"), it will default to the first word converted to lowercase (i.e. "john"). Before switching to a tty, open a terminal within your graphic environment by hitting Ctrl+Alt+t ...

Changing my keyboard converter from USB to PS/2 fixed the problem of being unable to type into the tty screen. Now I have an additional problem of being unable to log in correctly but I doubt that's related so this question is done with. Thanks mttdbrd for leading me on the right track.

Check the /etc/default/grub file. Specifically, you should have this line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" If it says anything else after the equal sign , change it to the line above. Run sudo update-grub and reboot. Among other things, try different greeter like gdm. sudo apt-get install gdm

You can try the following solutions If you have grub installed, you can boot to Ubuntu of an earlier version using the grub menu during boot. You can reinstall unity or install another desktop environment such as gnome or Lxde This may be a bit weird but you can write a shell script which is invoked whenever user logs in which runs the startx command

You can change the displayed TTY by commmand line with chvt (requires sudo privileges), from SSH for example. Here is the relevant part of the manpage (man chvt): CHVT(1) NAME chvt - change foreground virtual terminal SYNOPSIS chvt N DESCRIPTION The command chvt N makes /dev/ttyN the foreground terminal. (The corresponding ...

Try this fix: From a terminal: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install unity dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ This will reinstall unity and reset the config. If that doesn't work then: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop rm --recursive /home/user/.config/dconf/user but be aware that this solution will install ...

It might be an error in lightdm. Try installing gdm and uninstall lightdm and reboot and see if that works If that doesnt work uninstall gdm and reinstall lightdm. Reboot. Then enter unity-tweak-tool --reset into tty. Reboot. See if that works

Try pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1. That should allow you to enter tty1. If that doesn't work, try Ctrl+Alt+F2, Ctrl+Alt+F3, etc. etc. It will say something like: Ubuntu 14.10 ComputerName tty1 ComputerName Login: Type your username here and hit enter, and then your password. You should be able to access tty and go from there.

read from your syslog: the device seems to emulate a CD drive which delivers windows drivers. there are ttyACM devices. Did you try /dev/ttyACM1 and 2 instead of ttyUSB0?

I'm not entirely sure about the reasons, but currently (with the fully updated packages), the issue is gone. It was most likely a bug in one of the packages (perhaps some incompatibility related to the third party drivers). If anyone is still having the problem, just try updating all the packages.
