Just to elaborate on this (and to clarify), that's "control+alt+F1" OR "control+alt+F2" OR "control+alt+F3" OR . . . to go to different console sessions. Usually, there are 6 of them (F1 thru F6) and they are paired up with 6 GUI X sessions (F7 thru F12). Typically, it's F1 paired with F7 (as the previous poster pointed out), F2 with F8, F3 with F9 and so on. Another user can log onto F2, start X and be running X on F8 while you are running it on F7. The exact syntax that I use is:
startx -- :1 (the "1" changes depending on how many you currently have running). I think you can even start new x sessions from within KDE on Kubuntu, I'm not running it right now to check.
