    Virtual terminals with Acer AO722

    I have an Acer AO722 and am running Ubuntu 12.04. I've gone through many configuration changes and the netbook works really well now except for one thing: no virtual terminals.

    I've found posts that suggest this is a problem with the video drivers. Here is the hardware I'm running:

    tarka@Cuddy:~$ sudo lshw -C video
    [sudo] password for tarka: 
      *-display UNCLAIMED     
           description: VGA compatible controller
           product: Wrestler [Radeon HD 6290]
           vendor: Hynix Semiconductor (Hyundai Electronics)
           physical id: 1
           bus info: pci@0000:00:01.0
           version: 00
           width: 32 bits
           clock: 33MHz
           capabilities: pm pciexpress msi vga_controller bus_master cap_list
           configuration: latency=0
           resources: memory:e0000000-efffffff ioport:4000(size=256) memory:f0400000-f043ffff
    I downloaded and installed the fglrx driver and enabled it. Still no virtual terminals, though the video behaves differently under that driver. In both cases when I switch terminals, I get a black screen. But in both cases I can switch back to the primary (CTRL-ALT-F7) with no trouble.

    How can I get my virtual terminals running on this machine?

    Thanx in advance
