This will work if you have {{ic|xinit}} installed. If you are not using a custom {{ic|.xinitrc}}, this will open a terminal in the new X session. From that terminal you can test your setup and exit that session by typing {{ic|exit}} in the terminal. If you are using your own {{ic|.xinitrc}}, you will have to exit in whatever way is provided by your setup.
