Porteus 4.0 X86_64 - Xfce. No system modifications. UEFI only boot environment.
After logging out using the Xfce graphical utility, and then logging back in as guest, if you go to a virtual terminal session [ctrl-alt-f2..f6] and then use ctrl-alt-f7 to get back to the x-window environment, the screen is black. For me, the behavior is repeatable.
This behavior does NOT manifest itself if I don't log out and log back in - virtual terminals and the return to X11 works as it should.
Notes: perhaps it is my hardware, an Intel NUC. Possibly triggered by the combination of logging out, logging back in, followed by a virtual terminal session confusing the eventual return to X11?
Found a workaround:
If this happens, instead of using the canonical ctrl-alt-f7, increment it by one to ctrl-alt-f8. The screen at f7 is still black if you try to access it. Not sure if this is the intended behaviour.
Please reproduce your error on a second machine before posting, and check the error by running without saved changes or extra modules (See FAQ No. 13, "How to report a bug"). For unstable Porteus versions (alpha, beta, rc) please use the relevant thread in our "Development" section.
