in Google search I did not find a solution ! But I found this link:

https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest....

It talk about different issue: how to disable hint in console (tty terminal). So, if there is a way to disable them, then it must be a way to enable them. In the post#4 of link above it talk about using agetty & modify /etc/inittab .................

But when I run:

Code:

vi /etc/inittab

I received following output:

Code:

inittab is no longer used.

#

ADDING CONFIGURATION HERE WILL HAVE NO EFFECT ON YOUR SYSTEM.

#

Ctrl-Alt-Delete is handled by /usr/lib/systemd/system/ctrl-alt-del.target

#

systemd uses 'targets' instead of runlevels. By default, there are two main targets:

#

multi-user.target: analogous to runlevel 3

graphical.target: analogous to runlevel 5

#

To view current default target, run:

systemctl get-default

#

To set a default target, run:

systemctl set-default TARGET.target

Any one know what I should use instead to solve this issue ? I have no experience with systemd & it is very complex as SELinux & consider a securitty risk to try to modify it without being an experienced user with it's use .......
