I am trying to install cuda-9.0 for my machine. So, I followed the following steps:
- Open a terminal using Alt+Ctrl+F1
- Log in using my credentials
sudo lightdm stopto kill X
After this I lost my terminal session and fell back to my GUI instead! Also I don't have the ability to switch to a terminal using either Alt+Ctrl+F1-F6.
Is there a reasonable explanation for that? It seems that my terminal was GUI based (how is that possible anyway?) and got killed but my actual GUI had different pid and did not?
I am using Ubuntu 16.04
