Default Ctrl Alt F11 gives me trouble

That key combination put you into virtual console 11. Ctl-F1 would
have put you into the first VC and Ctl-F7 would have put you back into
X. Typically Debian sets up VCs 1-6 as console logins and 7 on up for
graphical (X) logins. If you have more than one user defined on your
system you can do a "Switch User" from KDE's Logout or Leave memu and
you'll be presented with another KDM prompt where the other user can
login. From that user's KDE Ctl-Alt-F7 will put you into your KDE
session and Ctl-Alt-F8 will put you into the other user's KDE.

*Alt*-F1, not Ctl-F1. Ctl-Alt-F1 would also work.

What did the prompt look like? How were you unable to properly interact
with it?

If I hit Ctrl-Alt-F11 from my X session, all I see is an empty screen.

/etc/inittab should tell you what Ctrl-Alt-Del is mapped to, usually
'shutdown -t1 -a -r now', which should have given you a clean reboot.

Are you sure nothing else happened?

What do you mean by 'system fonts'?

Do you mean the messages while the system is booting.. the fixed font on
the linux console after you login from the prompt.. the widget fonts in
gnome, KDE..?

Well at least the bright side is that you will enjoy some peace and
quiet while you fix the problem ;-)

> When I rebooted,

What's the exact scenerio.. did you reboot a second time?

Are you sure you didn't do a hard reset at some point?

Was the fsck succesful?

You may want to su to root and shut down the system like so to force an
fsck when the it restarts:

# shutdown -h -F now

See what it tells you.

> So I did, but the problem persists

You mean the fonts..? the audio..? or does a reboot always take you back
to a root shell for maintenance every time you reboot..?

> What do I do to regain my Debian partition's full functionality?

You need to give more information as to what you did, what you are
seeing, and what is not functional at this point.

Correct. I was hurrying off to work this morning. Sigh...

I see a blinking cursor in the upper left hand corner which is what I
assumed he was referring to.

This sounds a lot like you had upgraded a bunch of software but never
loaded the new versions until you rebooted (e.g., because you didn't
restart your desktop session after upgrading KDE).

That's why I don't run KDE.. I hate being dropped to single user mode
and asked to run a manual fsck the next time I reboot ;-)

Default Ctrl Alt F11 gives me trouble

Never having fully understood what the trouble was, I achieved to
solve the grief produced by playing with the kde fonts through system
settings and, of course, uninstalling pulseaudio, which I had thought
to have been already uninstalled.

Thank you all for your time.
