Ctrl-Alt-F1 will take you to a "Virtual Terminal" -- it's a console
screen where you can log in just as you would at the gnome-terminal
prompt. Then you issue those commands, and switch back to the running X
session, which is running on VT7, with Ctrl-Alt-F7. you cna switch
between the 6 built-in VT's with F1-F6; f7 is the default X session; F8
seems to echo system log messages unless you log in a second user, with
'Swtitch User', at which point a new X session will start on that screen.
Does that help?
ps -- My success rate is not that high -- at best I usually end up with
a barely-functional x system, try to save as much work as I can, then
restart X with 'sudo restart lightdm', which destroys my X session but
also resets whatever that display bug is. At worst the resultant
session is just as nonresponsive as the original crashed one.
