I recently tried to upgrade my Dell Latitude C610 from 10.10 to 11.04, but it got kernel panic right in the middle. Now it at least boots, but the mouse doesn't work--only the keyboard does. How do I fix this enough to use the mouse, or how do I operate Gnome with a keyboard?
Just before Lucid was released, I installed karmic on a vanilla VM in 64-bit mode, and all was good. Did a desktop setup and afterwards installed Eclipse, and I was happy: A new system for coding on-the-go! Now, after upgrading to Lucid with do-release-upgrade -d, I can no longer enter my password on X login. The keyboard just doesn't work for some reason. When I enable the onscreen keyboard, and click my password, I can login. The strange thing is that my keyboard works like a charm after I've logged into my X session?
After I finished upgrading Xubuntu from 9.10 to 10.04, I discovered that my keyboard stopped working in X Server. The upgrade process was running smoothly until the last moment, when it produced some error, which I, unfortunately, did not write down. Anyway, the upgrade has completed; uname shows kernel version 2.6.32-31. Now the keyboard works fine if I select a recovery mode at startup, but if I type 'start gdm' from the shell or select the default option in GRUB while booting, the keyboard becomes unavailable right from the login screen. I can log on using the virtual keyboard, but that's all I can do; the keyboard is still dead.
I have got Debian SID (2.6.38-2-amd64) (lenovo x61s) after the last aptitude dist-upgrade the keyboard does not work (udev 168-1) after boot. The USB keyboard and the usb mouse work fine. Have you got any idea on how to fix it? I have google it but I have not found any similar issue.

I just upgraded my 9.10 x64 Server to 10.04 using the standard Update Manager (I have the GNOME desktop installed). The installation went very smoothly, no errors or problems that I noticed. However, after reboot I get the main log in screen, but I can't enter my password because the keyboard seems to be ignored. The mouse is fine, no problems there. I looked at the various keyboard possibilities, and it has choosen the basic "USA" keyboard. It doesn't matter which keyboard type I choose though, it still fails to respond to any keyboard keypress. To be clear, there were no issues with the keyboard before the upgrade. I don't know where to start.
I just upgraded to 10.04 from 9.04 and I cannot log in to the machine. I tried launching the on-screen keyboard but it just flashes and disappears. Anyone else having this issue?I also tried attaching a different USB keyboard, but that didn't work either.
After upgrading to 10.4 from 9.8, my keyboard wouldn't work on the startup menu, I then went to the console and it worked perfectly. I'm new to Linux so don't know a lot about it. I also tried to reinstall it using: sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh -a
But it always stops and return "This page is not dpkg-info anymore, but GNU install info See the main page for ginstall-info for command line arguments: install-info:No dir file specified; try --help for more information."
After upgrading to 11.04 everything went fine for almost 6 weeks. Now the keyboard is no longer detected. It happened overnight, without any updates or changes. Mouse is working. (Partial upgrade from 10.10, desktop computer)
I tried to use the automatic upgrade to version 10 last night on my Acer Aspire 8930G. Everything seemed to work fine until I got to the reboot. At the reboot it tells me that it is running in low resolution mode because the nvidia drivers have been removed. That is fine except I cannot hit the enter button to accept the message either using the laptop keyboard or by restarting and using a USB keyboard.
I have a dual boot with windows and I'm averse to just reinstalling ubuntu because there is some data which would be annoying to lose.
I am using 10.10, yesterday I did an upgrade using update manager. After restart, booting stops at login screen, keyboard and mouse is not working. I tried login into recovery mode as well as previous kernel versions nothing is working. I tried to login into single user mode even that is also not working.
I just upgraded to 10.04, all went well, except now the "s" and "m" keys on my keyboard open the login menu and the "Me" menu (with the mail and chat options) respectively. Obviously this is very irritating, I can only type those letters by holding down alt. I can't think of how this happened, it didn't do it before the upgrade. I'm using an Apple aluminum keyboard with a Dell. When I run xev and type the s or m key, I get this:
There are no relevant shortcuts under keyboard shortcuts. I am using a xmodmap file that looks like this:
previosuly installed products that mapped keys, but I dont have and have never had any of them. reset the keyboard to default settings, which I happily did to no avail. So for me, since I upgraded, keyboard input (either local or via VNC, so it isnt hardware) does nothing for either the caps lock key or the shift key. Kinda makes it imnpossible to eneter @ or any uppercase character, for example !
I have a Xenta micro wifi keyboard which worked fine with 10.04 but after upgading to 10.10 it pairs Ok it does not work. In 10.04 all I had to do was enter the pin on the wifi keyboard.In 10.10 the pin has to be entered on the wifi and local keyboards.
I have Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop Edition i386 version. It was recently working fine until i installed few updates that showed in Update Manager about total size of 200Mb. During the installation BUG USB (blue screen) error comes and laptop restarted. Now i restarted the laptop and from now my mouse and the keyboard not working. I am not able to even login to the system. Not working now anything.. Details: I am running Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop i386 on VMWare Workstation on Windows Vista.
I have Windows XP Pro SP3 installed, and I just dual-booted it with Ubuntu. Whenever I reboot to select an OS, my keyboard won't work, so I can't select Ubuntu. Just Windows.I'm using an Saitek Eclipse USB keyboard.
I had a hell of a time getting 10.04 to work, because I only have a Logitech Dinovo Edge keyboard, and it stopped working after I upgraded. After grub, I'd get to the login screen, and the keyboard wouldn't do anything.
First, I dug up a mouse that did work. Then I logged in by clicking the Human Accessibility icon on the login screen. Somewhere in there, I was able to bring up an on screen keyboard. With the on screen keyboard, I could now login. Under system>preferences>bluetooth, I was able to, after some fiddling and plugging and unplugging, get the keyboard paired to the bluetooth dongle. Anyway, it seems pretty obvious now that my original bluetooth pairing was lost with the 10.04 upgrade, and I just needed to re-pair. I don't remember having such problems on previous upgrades, though.
Running Landmarq Intel Atom DC330 Desktop I have just attempted to upgrade my desktop machine from Kubuntu 10.04 to Kubuntu 10.10. I used KpackageKit to do the upgrade which proceeded smoothly until the install packages phase, which seemed to complete and then repeat. I don't know the detail of what happened as I was out of the room.
The repeat almost completed, but then I got a set of error messages, which basically told me that KpackageKit was unable to install the upgraded packages. I closed KpackageKit, and closed the machine and tried a reboot. This time, I got as far as the splash screen, but although the cursor flashes, I can't type anything in the password box. In addition, the mouse pointer won't move. Using a different wireless mouse works, but I still can't type in a password.
However, the command ctrl+alt+sysrq+RSEIUB works, so the machine is accepting some keyboard input. I also know from using a live disc that my home directory is intact. I would like to revert to my 10.04 installation, and re-try an upgrade to 10.11 afterwards.
Approximately 5 seconds afterwards it tells me, that the root device was not found. My root volume is a LVM inside a LUKS container, so I guess the keyboard error from above implies that it can't query me for my passwort and therefore open the volume.
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to dual boot with Win Xp and everything went fine with the installation untill I went to boot back into Windows. My keyboard fails to respond in the boot loader so I am stuck with the default setting of booting back into Linux. To be clear, the keyboard works when the BIOS loads, I can hit DEL and go to the BIOS menu, etc, it's only when I hit the boot loader. The keyboard also works fine in Linux and Windows.
I tried to upgrade from 10.4 to 10.10.Every thing went normal until the grub screen wanted me to select which kernel.The wireless usb keyboard and mouse would not work.I found an old keyboard and mouse, they worked.the login screen popped up, I selected the user name and typed the password.After a moment the login screen pops back up.I can log into the recovery console.
After a reboot earlier today, my Ubuntu 10.10 box (which I set up earlier today) has started rebooting to tty1. But I can't type a username - nothing appears, although the system does respond to control-alt-delete, and reboots. I don't see anything obviously wrong in the setup when I boot using the live CD and mount my disk.
I just installed Debian Testing (with Xfce) along side Win7 on my Dell XPS M1530 and now neither my keyboard nor my USB-mouse work at the login screen. Both worked perfectly during the installation and Grub as well recognizes my keyboard. The Numlock-LED can be switched on and off during the boot, but fails to work at the login screen.
recently i tried to install for the first time and everything booted up fine but when i got to the post install configuration my mouse and keyboard don't work! after that one time whenever i try to load linux it just sits at the boot screen where the colored bar goes left to right and has fedora text in the bottom right corner. i don't know if this matters or not but i'm dual booting with windows XP also i tried using a live cd of fedora 11 it always boots up to the login however just like above i can't use my mouse or keyboard for that one either.
I downloaded the Fedora 11 KDE livecd, installed it, and after the reboot when I get to that "firstboot" screen, I can't move the mouse, the keyboard doesn't work, I have to hold down the power button to turn off the computer.
I have problems with keyboard layout switcher. On Gnome everything works. But when I start to use other DE I can't switch keyboard layout by default. So I create xorg.conf, but anyway it doesn't work...
