My main display is 0, running on terminal tty7, started automatically at boot time.
I switch to terminal tty2, start another X server as display 1 (
xinit -- :1).
I can run programs from the X terminal and they are shown on display 1 (in tty2) ... so far so good.
Problem is, display 0 on tty7 is persistent (I can switch in and out of tty7 and my desktop is always there) but when I switch out of tty2 and back again, display 1 has stopped, just the normal black console.
Is it possible for me to make display 1 persistent so I can switch in and out of it ?
I am running Ubuntu 14.04 with Xfce.
