Kmscon is a simple terminal emulator based on linux kernel mode setting (KMS). It is an attempt to replace the in-kernel VT implementation with a userspace console. It is similar to the in-kernel terminal-emulator and is based on DRM. Listed below is the procedure to install kmscon in ubuntu.
sudo apt-get install libgles2-mesa-dev libgbm-dev libegl1-mesa-dev libdrm-dev libglib2.0-dev libfreetype6-dev git clone https://github.com/dvdhrm/kmscon.git ./autogen.sh make sudo ./kmscon --switchvt
The last command will start kmscon on
I ran it and it said:
$ sudo ./kmscon –switchvt
[0000.000000] NOTICE: kmscon Build #1…
but nothing runs on the new VT, no shell, nothing, only a blinking cursor… how could I log into it?
