You can use grub to enter a root shell: Press e when in grub and edit the line looking something like: linux /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda4 ro quiet splash to linux /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda4 ro single. Alternatively you can use ubuntu recovery and launch a root shell from there. Then just revert the changes you made to /etc/X11/xorg.conf and reboot.


Ah, the solution was relatively simple, instead of running $ startx /usr/bin/xterm -- :1 Running $ startx /usr/bin/xterm -- :1 vt$(tty | sed -e "s:/dev/tty::") Will prevent X from breaking when I switch TTYs.
