As we saw in the last article TTY: What is? What’s the use? . If you think you do not need as many TTY as those available by default in your environment. I agree, and it affects a little performance of your linux .. but rather it. Certainly for those who need the full potential of a machine that will make a difference.

There are ways you can decrease the amount of TTY of their distribution here will decline to 3 the device files , if you want to you can change as you wish, just following the logic, and steps.


To get access to the console root and edit the file /etc/default/console-setup. I like to use the nano to edit files on the command line. But the use of your own, if you do not have nano, try the pico.

The +5 is already to begin with the cursor on line 5, which on ubuntu (at least in my ubuntu 13.10 ) is the line that we will edit. If it is not in his use ctrl + w to find, and good luck!


You’ll find something like:

Change to:

Thus altered the amount of TTY 3.

Then go to the directory /etc/init/, and move the files to another tty place, or rename them.

Restart your operating system, and it will load the settings now, or will not load … Everything depends on your point of view, call your grandmother explains to her everything you read … and make an brainstorm with her.
