printer face on pi

Wed Jan 03, 2018 2:34 am

Happy New Year everyone. I installed an app called proterface for my 3D printer on a Pi Zero, then set the command line in ~/.profile so it will run as soon as the pi boot up. It works fine except the the app obscured the entire pi menu that I can't get to the terminal anymore, is there a keyboard short cut to start the terminal? Thanks.

~/.profile is not executed on boot but on login...

But if you are lucky, pronterface can't open a display and crashes.
