If you use Vmware Server to run a guest Linux Operating System on a Linux host, you should have several surprises with keyboard shortcuts …
If you want to open one of the six virtual terminals within the Linux guest with
Ctrl + Alt + F1 to F6, you get your virtual terminal … but this is a host terminal, not a guest one !
— From guest Gnome :
Ctrl + F1-6 + Alt (follow the key sequence !)
— From a guest virtual terminal : Give back focus to the guest linux AND
<Super> + F1-7
Also you cannot restart X with
Crtl + Alt + Bkspce because it is the Linux host that is affected … annoying!
