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:
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.
tarka@Cuddy:~$ sudo lshw -C video

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