you are right that was crap. sorry.
the F# works fine as just tested in firefox.
the reason i got confused is because i, other
than vterm, dont have use for them.
so the real issue is that switching vterms
doesnt work, not even right now in normal ops.
maybe because i xmodmapped alt to win and ctrl
to caps? or cause i inittab into runlevel 5
directly? so this happens when an only superficially
experienced guy wants to use the power tools -
but now were completely off-topic :)
