Default No access to virtual terminals from X.

No access when in the Gnome desktop environment,everything o/k otherwise.
FreeBSD FAQ extract.
11.11. How do I access the virtual consoles from X?

Use Ctrl+Alt+Fn to switch back to a virtual console. Ctrl+Alt+F1 would return you to the first virtual console.

Once you are back to a text console, you can then use Alt+Fn as normal to move between them.
I dont have an Fn key,but I have tried Ctrl+Alt+F(all Fkeys) and Alt+F keys.
But nothing seems to work.Apart from sending my /etc/ttys and /etc/X11/xorg.conf I dont know what else I can do.

ttyv0   "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         cons25  on  secure
# Virtual terminals
ttyv1   "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         cons25  on  secure
ttyv2   "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         cons25  on  secure
ttyv3   "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         cons25  on  secure
ttyv4   "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         cons25  on  secure
ttyv5   "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         cons25  on  secure
ttyv6   "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         cons25  on  secure
ttyv7   "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         cons25  on  secure
ttyv8   "/usr/local/sbin/gdm -nodaemon" xterm   off secure
