OpenSUSE Install :: 11.1 Deactivates USB Keyboard - Lights Off

Feb 5, 2010

I used to work with a PS/2 keyboard. But one key of it has a malfunction. So I bought a new Cherry USB Keyboard. GRUB and the BIOS like it - no doubt, the keyboard itself is OK. But as soon as SUSE 11.1 takes control during boot, the lights of the keyboard are switched off, and the keyboard is deactivated. I even tried to re-install 11.1 from DVD with the USB keyboard plugged in alone - in vain. With the PS/2 keyboard I didn't ever had any such problems. I run a system with a Pentium III (Katmai) on an Intel RC440BX Motherboard.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: ATI Catalyst 9.12 -- X Blank Screen / Hard Lock Keyboard Lights Don't Toggle?

Dec 19, 2009

I installed the new 9.12 cat drivers in the usual way (init 3; rpm -e the old drivers; generate new rpm; rpm -i new drivers; init 5), but instead of starting like I expected, I got a blank screen and what appeared to be a hard lock (keyboard lights don't toggle, Ctrl + Alt + Backspace and Ctrl + Alt + F1 don't do anything).

I switched back to radeonhd, but I'd like to get the proprietary drivers working if possible.

The usual listings

[nathan@ebisu ~] lsmod | grep fgl
fglrx 2323096 0
[nathan@ebisu ~] modprobe -l | grep fgl
Looks like the driver loaded OK...
[nathan@ebisu ~] dmesg | grep fgl

Ubuntu :: Freezes Randomly, Flashing Keyboard Lights

Apr 5, 2011

I've been an Ubuntu user for a couple of years. I have a Sony Vaio VPCCW-2S1E laptop, with an Nvidia GT330M graphics card. I had worked with Karmic, Lucid and Maverick on this laptop without any problems, until recently, when I had to re-install Maverick.

Now my laptop keeps freezing entirely (no response whatsoever), with two keyboard lights blinking. This happens randomly: sometimes I'm doing something, other times the laptop's completely idle. Sometimes the screen display turns off on freezing, other times not.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wirelesscard Lights Up - Can See SSID But Still Does Not Connect ?

Jul 2, 2010

I have a supported BCM4318 "EDUP" wireless card. I am very, very new to opensuse, 2 days old to be exact. However I can read, so I followed the instructions listed in the "Getting Your Wireless to Work" with no avail. It is really weird. I am using the network manager. When I right click on the tiny blue wireless bar down below I see both my network and my neighbors. I click on mine and it asks for my WEP key, I enter it and when I mouse over the icon it sayS that it is obtaining network address. If I click on it at this point it says activating. Then it says waiting for authorization. I have used the fwcutter to download the latest firmware. I have even used ndiswrapper to install from the Edup driver cd. No good! The other thing is, that I am running Ubuntu 9 on the same machine on the same network with the same card and it works.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Install Fails - No Keyboard, No Mouse?

Mar 4, 2010

I just bought a Fujitsu Esprimo P1500 computer with Windows 7 Home Premium. When I try to install OpenSuse 11.2, the keyboard works in the first screen, so I can select "Installation" with the arrow keys. But when the next screen comes up (select keyboard etc.), neither keyboard nor mouse work. Well, the CapsLock and NumLock LEDs light up, but that is all (and hitting the corresponding keys does not turn them off.)

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard & Mouse Not Responding 11.2?

Nov 12, 2009

I just installed the new OpenSuSE 11.2 release and after coming up in graphical mode the keyboard and mouse are not responding at all.

After that via a remote login force the machine back to runlevel 3 and this makes it able to login to the console and trying to start sax2 to make a new X configuration.

Well it doesn't read the old configuration but gets stuck as well.

The install was an update from OpenSuSE 11.1.

OpenSUSE Install :: Sax And X11 Disabled Keyboard And Mouse

Dec 20, 2009

I am quite experienced in installing openSUSE. (I used it for many years.) But the problem showed below tricks me out.

I just tried to install openSUSE 11.2. In initmode 3 the keyboard works well. Everything worked well up to the moment I started runlevel 5. In XWindows Modus, the keyboard and the mouse are disabled. And I cannot get back to any other Virtual console.

When I started sax2, I get something (in the file /var/log/Sax.log) or both mouse and keyboard like this:

It indicates , mouse and keyboard are disabled.

Here are my questions:

How can I ENABLE my keyboard and my mouse?

Where is the file that configures sax2?

Do I have to set ("on") the AutoAddDevices? or to "off"

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 X Gui Is Not Recognizing Keyboard And Mouse

Dec 27, 2009

I have just update from 11.1 to 11.2 and after reboot system hangs when arrives to the screen where all users logins are showed. I run the installation again in repair mode. Everything correct. Started system again in Level 3, login as one of the users and run startx. It starts the desktop but no keyboard or mouse is working. Started system again in level 3, login as root, started gdm and same results. It arrives to the login screen for the different users and keyboard and mouse does not work. System seems to be running as clock in the right down works.

Started system again in Level 3, login as root, run SaX2 and same results: no keyboard no mouse. I am running gnome desktop with last image downloaded openSUSE-11.2-DVD-i586.iso. it seems to be something related to bug in OpenSuse 11.2 Milestone 7: (Bugs:Most Annoying Bugs 11.2 dev - openSUSE) HAL may crash, leaving XOrg without keyboard and mouse (Bug #537452), work-around: update with 'hal' package from Base:System

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard And Mouse No More Responding?

Feb 5, 2010

On our SuSe 11.1 PC keyboard and mouse are no more responding although it did work properly until yesterday. We shut down the computer yesterday evening and today they do not work anymore. But it is not a hardware problem, we can use keyboard and mouse until Grub bootloader, but as soon as we start a Linux session (doesn't matter if normal or failsave mode) the keyboard and mouse are disabled, we can see that because the NumLock and CapsLock LEDs are switched off immediately.

We have no idea what happened. We booted from CD into rescue mode and mounted the hard disk manually and checked some logfiles, but the boot.log tells us that USB keyboard and mouse are detected, as well as the Xorg.0.log file. And we found no indication that keyboard or mouse are disabled or something like that.

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Use Keyboard / Mouse After Update

Sep 12, 2010

Today I installed openSUSE 11.3. I finished downloading updates, and restarted. I can get through the grub menu fine, but after that my keyboard and mouse fail to respond. On my windows partition(which is where I'm writing this) my keyboard and mouse work fine. If it matters, they are the Logitech Wireless EX100 keyboard and mouse set.

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard Layout Keeps Reverting To USA

Dec 12, 2010

I have a UK keyboard, so I selected the United Kingdom layout on installation of OpenSUSE 11.3.However, something keeps automatically adding the USA layout, and switching to it ! How can I prevent this annoying and intrusive behaviour ? Deleting the USA layout is not enough, it seems. It just restores it again.

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Use Keyboard After Upgrade To 11.4?

Mar 16, 2011

A few days ago I upgraded my workstation from OpenSuse 11.2 to 11.4 and found that when I got to an X login screen I could not type anything though the mouse worked. If I went straight to a terminal, such as by booting to runlevel 3 the keyboard worked fine so I figured the problem was related to Xorg. I did some research on the web and tried various fixes, such as reloading the proprietary Nvidia drivers, trying the nouveau drivers, booting with the nomodeset option, as well as trying most of the suggestions in this excellent article: SDB:Configuring graphics cards - openSUSE. No of these solutions remedied the problem.

Eventually I looked closer into the new (at least compared to 11.2) configuration for xorg. If I used the xorg.conf.install file or used an earlier Nvidia-specific xorg.conf file the problem continued. After taking a closer look at /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/90-keytable.conf file I noticed all of the values for the options were blank, just "". I set XkbLayout to "us", started X and I had a functioning keyboard!

OpenSUSE Install :: Could Not Login Because GDM Was Not Listening To The Keyboard

Apr 28, 2011

I have Lenovo T61 with opensuse 11.4 which until this morning was working just fine. I have used OpenSuse on this notebook for about 2 years with out much trouble. This morning on boot up I could not login because GDM was not listening to the keyboard for some reason. I rebooted on a live disk and the hardware was just fine. I switched to init 3 in /etc/inittab and the keyboard was working fine. If I started X with startx it still worked fine. If I started gdm the keyboard was not working anymore, so much so that I could not do {ctrl}{alt}{F1} to switch to a virtual terminal or {ctrl}{alt}{bksp} to kill X, nothing. The mouse worked so I could reboot.

I installed KDM and switched to it instead of GDM for the display manager with yast and was able to login and everything is fine. I would like to switch back to GDM but it is not that big of a deal

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 - Keyboard Not Working After Resume From Suspend To RAM

Nov 15, 2009

When I resume my system after choosing the "Suspend to RAM" option, the login prompt appears but the keyboard doesn't work at all. (Caps/Num/Scroll don't light up either) The mouse, however, works fine and I'm able to click on the on-screen elements. Since I'm not able to login, I'm forced to reboot and abort the session. Note that this does NOT happen with the "Suspend to Disk" feature. (ie, it works fine).

System Specs:

openSUSE 11.2 KDE4.3 x86_64 (updated)

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard & Mouse Not Responding At Login?

Mar 7, 2010

I recently installed suse 11.2 on my system and during the install the keyboard (Microsoft internet keyboard PS/2) and mouse (Microsoft optical mouse USB with scroll wheel) worked perfectly, but once I reached the login screen they both became unusable.

I also tried rebooting into failsafe mode but once reaching the login screen the same happened again, the only key that seems to work is the 'F Lock' key and the optical light appears on the mouse.

OpenSUSE Install :: HD Updated - No Keyboard / Mouse After Boot

Jun 3, 2010

I had a normal OpenSuse 11.1 setup, along with Windows XP, swap partition and /home partition. After my hd began failing (badblocks), I cloned the system to a different location (using ddrescue), updated the hd with a new one (bigger), made new partitions on the new hd (preserving the old locations, ex: /dev/sda1 ext3 on old hd still is /dev/sda1 on new one, but made changes to the partitions sizes to make them bigger), recovered all the clones to the new hd, fsck'ed them, recovered grub with install dvd then tried to boot.

On the first boot, it failed to mount / (/dev/sda1) and gave me a command line. I checked /etc/fstab and saw that, on the old setup, it was mounting the partitions based on the HD-id, which obviously changed. I fixed that to use /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, etc. Now, the systems boots fine. But, when I get to the graphical login part, the keyboard and the mouse don't work. It's a Dell Inspiron 1525 notebook, now with a 320gb samsung hd.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 In Intel G33 / DG31PR With Core2Duo - Can't Use Keyboard

Sep 9, 2010

I installed 11.3 Gnome 32 bit in my system twice after couple logins and updates the system freezes. I can't use keybord etc. Only option is Power off/on. It happens either during boot/during usage randomly. I posted my issue in this forum and implemented the suggestion but after couple of reboots, now it won't boot, not even in safemode. So I have decided to Install again. In the same machine I have installed Ubuntu and it's working fine without any problems from 1 week.

OpenSUSE Install :: Changing Default Keyboard Mapping On Grub?

Nov 30, 2009

I have installed 11.2 with English as default language. During the installation, I tried to change the default keyboard mapping to Spanish, but right now, when the system boots it uses an English mapping. I've seen there is an option to change that on the grub menu and I would like it to default to Spanish. Is it possible? I haven't found much info on the web, but my guess is that changing the DEFAULT_APPEND in /etc/sysconfig/bootloader with an unknown-keyboard-related option will solve it.

OpenSUSE Install :: User Account Refuses Keyboard Input?

Dec 18, 2009

openSuse v11.1
Linux x86_64
VirtualBox v3.1.0

One user account completely ignores all keyboard input. No other account demonstrates this bizarre behavior. The faulty account has had occasional keyboard difficulty but it has always been related to the Virtual Machines (VirtualBox); the hosting account always functioned correctly.

Then the ban on keyboard input. Poof! "Keyboard? What keyboard? I don't see no stinking keyboard!"

It is not the physical keyboard. Three different hardware exhibit the same fault. It is not the motherboard; two mb's show the same fault. It is only that one account. And I even took the Windows route of re-installing the OS (what a waste of time that was).

If something changed, I am not aware of it (although something must have).

OpenSUSE Install :: Wireless Keyboard Not Recognized In First Boot Screen

Mar 1, 2010

I have a Microsoft Wireless keyboard / mouse which I use for my Windows world. I have tried booting the OpenSuSE 10.2, 11 DVDs, but none of them recognize the wireless keyboard that I have connected and I am unable to proceed with the installation because, the default selection in OpenSuSE's first installation screen is *Boot from HardDisk* I also tried using the Ubuntu Live CD that I had, the same problem of keyboard not recognized, but the lucky part was, the first screen in the live CD was a language selection and the default language was English and timed out and moved onto booting the Live CD. Once the booting was over, the wireless keyboard and mouse worked like a charm!

Keyboard works on grub menu. Also works now in XP. Tried reconnecting (sync & plug unplug) different usb ports and nothing. Gave it a few minutes on startup and still nothing. Plugged in a PS2 keyboard and the lights just blink after startup and it will not work either.
