Yep. I didn't even know about "invokerc.d gdm".
I _did_, however, know about "chvt", which is usuable across any X11
"desktop environment" or none, and is worth knowing about:
chvt - change foreground virtual terminal
The command chvt N makes /dev/ttyN the foreground terminal. (The
corresponding screen is created if it did not exist yet. To get rid of
unused VTs, use deallocvt(1).) The key combination (Ctrl-)LeftAlt-FN
(with N in the range 1-12) usually has a similar effect.
(I'm not really down on GNOME. Much. It's much better than it used to
be, at least.)
