Ubuntu: Why does GDM start in TTY2 and TTY7


I have Ubuntu 15.04 and GNOME 3.16 installed.

This PPAs are enabled:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/gnome3-team/gnome3-staging/ubuntu vivid main  deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/gnome3-team/gnome3/ubuntu vivid main  

Interestingly, GDM runs in TTY1 and TTY7. Is there a way to fix this? I would like that GDM runs only in TTY7.


In /etc/gdm/gdm.conf you can set what the 1st terminal should be the graphical interface. FirstVT=7 will make GDM check tty7 first (by the way: this could mean it ends up on tty8, tty9 if these are enabled and tty7 is not free.

If this is inactive in /etc/gdm/gdm.conf it will probably randomly start with tty1 and if that is active (ie. a terminal session is open) it will pick tty2 and so on.

Note:If u also have question or solution just comment us below or mail us on toontricks1994@gmail.com
