I just installed the minimal version of NixOS.
It starts into tty1. When I try other virtual consoles by ctrl+alt+F1/…/F7 as I normally do in Ubuntu, only ctrl+alt+F4 changes me to a different tty, tty4, and the other key bindings don’t seem to make any change. I then can’t switch back to tty1. Is this normal? Why? Note that there are tty1,…tty63 in /dev/
After I enable sway, by
programs.sway.enable = true, when I start NixOS, it still starts into tty1 first. Is it not necessary to boot NixOS into GUI directly? How can I make nixos boot into sway directly?
When I enter sway, I can’t switch to any text console by ctrl+alt+F1/…/F6.
Can it be because when I installed Ubuntu on this Dell inspiron-7559, I added nouveau.modeset=0 to GRUB’s linux line, following nvidia - dell inspiron 7559 hangs on live boot HELP! - Ask Ubuntu? I haven’t installed any Nvidia driver yet.
Before I installed NixOS to overwrite Ubuntu, I remember virtual console key bindings ctrl+alt+F1/…/F6 didn’t work too.
