What are the default session values in Zorin?

I have a tty1 that i cant log in never. It is like a pipe that send me today to tty2 if i log in. Yesterday it log me to tty3. tty1 never log in tty1. Why Zorin have a graphic tty1 that never login and to other alternate ttys?

Distro info

TTY 1 is often reserved for system text messages during boot. In an operating system with a splash screen the boot text checklist is hidden. Zorin is based on Ubuntu which includes tty 1 -tty 6.

Thanks for reply. Today is a little different. In tty1 appears a graphics login. But it is impossible log in there. I log today in tty7 and open a terminal in tty2.

Later, suspend and up. Then the session change 7 to 10.

If tty7 is not included, what is happening?

Perhaps my info is outdated and Zorin is different in that regard. I would suggest you do a search related to tty and also Linux run levels. There is a wealth of information on the subject. You can access the tty man pages in the terminal.
Linux does support 7 run levels.

From Ask Ubuntu:

In case of Ubuntu, tty7 is usually used by Xorg, do provide your graphical environment (to be more exact, it provides a "windowing system" only, and things like the gnome - as a desktop environment solution - runs "top of it").

It is very rare that each day the tty change ramdomly, but in tty1 always there are a "login only" screen that pipe me to the tty7, in today case. And the login in tty1 is blue and login in tty7 is black. And i can not turn off, suspend or reboot in tty7. I need to log off in tty7. Then move to tty1 with c-a-f1 and there i can do that.
