systemd config: restore autostart on tty2-5

This is more related to systemd than Whonix, but the Whonix developers set it up this way, so I am asking here.

I can’t find the correct solution in my searches for Linux, Debian or systemd configuration. I just want to restore the getty@.service for tty2-5 to the default behaviour.

I tried systemctl enable getty@tty2.service but that makes it run all the time instead of autostarting when you switch to that virtual terminal.

Basically I just want to know what was done to prevent them from starting so I can undo it.

Let me start off by saying I know how frustrating It can be when you can’t find a solution to your problem. Unfortunately I don’t have an answer for you. I do believe however, that you will have better luck finding an answer on the Unix and Linux Stack Exchange

Also the Whonix Support page has some helpful information that I think may be of use to you. If you post your question on Stack Exchange make sure to add the whonix tag.

Please don’t take this the wrong way. I understand that you are using Whonix but this is more of a general Debian/Linux issue. Not only that but you are much more likely to get a solution to your issue as the Stack Exchange community is much bigger than the Whonix community and more eyes will see your question.

Good luck!
