Ubuntu :: New Install, Keyboard Doesn't Work

Mar 17, 2010

Windows crapped out on me (not surprisingly) and I am using Ubuntu to transfer all of my files to an external hard drive. However, when the computer loads the Ubuntu disk I get to a language selection menu, but my keyboard doesn't work. It won't let me make any sort of selection, and the 30 second timer eventually times out and my system just restarts and the process starts all over again.

I've tried plugging my keyboard in to all of the different USB ports on my computer, but still nothing. The strange thing is that the keyboard works just fine when I changed the BIOS settings to boot from the cd-rom... it just doesn't work when Ubuntu is ready to run..

Slackware :: Installing / After Loading Kernel It Asks For Keyboard Configuration, But Keyboard (usb Wireless) Doesn't Work?

Jul 18, 2010

I'm trying to install slackware 32 bit 13.1.After loading kernel it asks for keyboard configuration, but keyboard (usb wireless) doesn't work.

Keyboard works on the old 13.0 installation, on bios and also in the boot options of 13.1 installation cd.

I've tried removing legacy usb support and changing usb2.0 speed from high to full. Nothing changed.

Anybody with this strange problem? (kernel of setup seems also to detect it correctly as a trust keyboard).

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Shortcut Doesn't Work

Feb 28, 2011

I created a bunch of keyboard shortcuts via "System > Preferences Keyboard Shortcuts," and they all work flawlessly except one: Nautilus. I just set it to run the command "nautilus" and it doesn't do anything. My GNOME panel launcher runs the same command just fine.

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Is Locked, And The Onboard Doesn't Work Too?

Feb 13, 2010

I wanted to type something in french so I started the on board keyboard so I'll know where the letters are. Now my keyboard is locked, and the onboard doesn't work too... all I did was to click on some of the settings of the onboard.Sadly the onboard didn't show me the french keyboard, so that's a downer too.

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Doesn't Work When Mouse Is Moving

Jun 23, 2010

When I'm using Nautilus, I've found (for years) that I've had to hit Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V or Del multiple times until the commands would register. I noticed this occurs when the mouse is moving. I've looked under System > Preferences but can't find anything. Is there a key in gconf or something that I can disable?

Ubuntu Installation :: Keyboard Doesn't Work After Boot ?

Apr 29, 2011

I have been working on this problem for a year now. It is becoming critical because I need to upgrade Linux. I really want Ubuntu.

Keyboard works fine at power on. I can edit BIOS options. I put in the CD or DVD, it starts fine. Keyboard works for selecting boot options. Once the installation begins however, no more keyboard...

This is true across every version and distribution of Linux I have come across- I have dozens of liveCDs -EXCEPT Linux Mint 8.

Laptop = Acer 5517

Running Linux Mint 8 & Windows 7

I have no USB Legacy Emulation BIOS option

I've tried this: [url]

Ubuntu :: Upgrade To 10.04 Keyboard Doesn't Work In X Server

May 29, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Boots To Tty1 - Keyboard Doesn't Work

Mar 16, 2011

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 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?

Debian Hardware :: Keyboard Doesn't Work After Installation

Jul 5, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade 9.10 To 10.04: Keyboard Doesn't Work On X Login Anymore

Apr 30, 2010

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?

Debian Configuration :: 8.1 - Keyboard Doesn't Work On Resume From Suspend

Jun 19, 2015

I'm running Debian 8.1 KDE on a 2007 dv6 laptop. Model number is worn off. lol but the specs:

Intel i3 first gen m 330
Intel (ironlake) graphics

First off, closing the lid to my laptop doesn't trigger suspend, or anything no matter what I set it to in power options.

I can suspend using "systemctl" or suspend from the "Leave" menu, but upon turning my computer back on, my touchpad and keyboard don't work.

Sometimes, my touchpad will start working after about 15 seconds, but the keyboard doesn't come back. I have to hard reset.

I have a feeling it's something to do with systemd, but I'm not super proficient in linux. Just an end user who is friendly with a terminal.

After banging my head against the wall for 20+ hours I decided it was time to ask for help. m just Lynxing around the web at the moment =X

Ubuntu :: Remote Doesn't Work Without Keyboard / Mouse Plugged In - Restore Its Functionality?

Oct 11, 2010

I (finally!) have Mythtv working under 10.04. I use the Haupaugge DVB-T card with its remote. Whilst setting up the kit this worked OK. When I unplugged the keyboard and mouse the system prior to installing it next to the TV appeared to have stopped responding to the remote. In fact it seems to be responding to a number of the remote keys but not the OK and Go keys which isn't enough to run Mythtv.

I don't think leaving a keyboard & mouse plugged in is going to be domestically acceptable.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how to restore lirc functionality?

General :: Keyboard Function Button That Corresponds To Wireless Doesn't Work

Aug 28, 2011

I want to install Linux on my laptop. I started with Arch but 4 hours later, I'll take anything so now I'm trying Ubuntu.It appears that the keyboard function button that corresponds to my wireless does not work, and perhaps is windows dependent?Every time I try to interact with wlan0, I get the error "Operation not possible due to RF-kill". And as I've looked around online, it has been suggested in other forums that the only way to resolve this is to reinstall windows and dual boot, so the FN key will work.

I think this is ridiculous. There must be a way to persuade the RF-kill to be turned off again, shouldn't there?I don't have a recover disk for this laptop and I don't want to go through the trouble of requested one from acer. I reformatted the whole disk while attempted to install arch.

Fedora :: Keyboard Doesn't Work After Setting - Swap Ctrl And Caps Lock

I'm running fedora 13 on a Dell Latitude E6500. It's a dual 64-bit system.

It was working, but then I tried to swap caps lock and control.

I used:
Then, under Control Key Position, I selected swap caps lock and control.

Now, my keyboard won't work in the Keyboard Preferences test area or in any other window or when the screen-lock comes on.

I tried logging out. I tried rebooting. I tried deleting my .gnome2 directory. Nothing seems to work. I can use the keyboard on other accounts, so the keyboard is not the problem.
