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.
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.
All of the sudden my keyboard and mouse are not working any more. At login window keyboard is working OK so I can login (mouse is not working), but after login, keyboard is not responding unless I press the key for few moments (perhaps a second) until a keyrepeat begins. Only then key is accepted and echoed on screen.
Funny thing is, if I login as some other user, everything works as expected.
I have already ran Xorg -configure as su, but it didn't resolve the problem.
I just upgraded from 9.10 to 10,4 via update manager and now when I switch on, the boot process seems to work but when I arrived to the login page, I can't use mouse or keyboard. The system is not freezed because I can see the watch on the lower right running properly.
I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on other machines before and have not experienced this problem. Occasionally, the system will lock up. They keyboard and mouse stop responding (my keyboard status lights no longer respond, but my optical mouse light is still on). I can ssh to the machine, and it seems to work as normal. I kill processes that are open on my desktop through ssh, (i.e., Firefox), and I notice when I switch back, I still have the same frozen image on my screen. I have looked at the following files to determine any issues with the GPU:
Today my keyboard and or mouse repeatedly stop responding some minutes after boot. Currently the mouse stops responding after a few seconds of movement immediately after boot. Yesterday I used the machine most of the day, yet this issue didn't arise. Today I used it for a few hours before the issue developed. I did a full system update from the fresh install yesterday night. It's therefore possible that this issue has arisen as a result of the update, and that today the onset was delayed for some reason.
Earlier today I had the same problem with the keyboard. I replaced the batteries thinking that this was the cause. Now it looks like both keyboard and mouse are affected by the same problem. When the mouse stops functioning and the keyboard remains active, I unplug the mouse and replug it in, but it still does not respond, and only the unplug, and not the replug, are detected and logged in dmesg. I noticed ever since I installed Fedora yesterday that plugging in new usb devices after boot did not result in them being recognised, and that if I unplugged a mouse or keyboard and plugged them in again they would not work (requiring a hard reset). Currently the machine isn't usable as I cannot use the mouse for more than a few seconds. I haven't tried a PS2 connection, and currently I have keyboard access.

I haven't tried PS2. My keyboard and mouse appear to be working again (25 mins and still responsive).I unplugged all USB devices except for the keyboard, mouse, and wifi dongle. This appears to have solved the problem. Other devices that were plugged in were a USB to SATA external HDD caddy (powered off), and a serial USB connection to a Sheeva Plug computer (mini server). how I can use all my USB ports in future without this issue arising?
Hey folks. I'm not sure how to describe this properly but periodically Kubuntu 11.04 will stop responding to my mouse and keyboard EXCEPT that Plasma, or what I assume is Plasma, still responds to mouse events. I can launch and exit the desktop cube and desktop grid but can't access my panels or any application controls. The only fix I've found is to do a hard power cycle.
Does this behavior ring any bells for anyone? This is the last hurdle I've got between me and using Kubuntu 11.04 full time on my Samsung RV515.
My ubuntu session will freeze and stop working. For example, the mouse and the keyboard will stop responding and the screen sometimes get divided into 4 smaller quadrants of the current screen.The only thing I can do after it freezes is reboot the machine.Would anyone know what is causing this?Also, I keep having to move my optical mouse from the usb slot into a ps/2 slot.And the same thing with my keyboard. I have 2 keyboards, so I can plug in the old ps/2 keyboard instead of the new usb keyboard. (the devices keep flipping)My machine is an AMD 3400 with an Epox mobo. Nothing like this has ever happened before, and I have been using ubuntu for more than 4 years without any problems.
It's two days now I'm in deep troubles after my last "yum update". The system boots as usual, the graphical login pops up the normal way but no input is handled by either the internal keyboard (the system is a laptop), the mouse pad, the external USB mouse and keyboard.
The hardware itself seems to be working as I can pop up the BIOS menus and even edit the GRUB booting line. But, after GRUB there's no possible input. I've tried to boot the system with the Fedora 11 DVD, rescue menu and then chroot. This in order to run a "yum update" in the hope that the problem was in some broken update. No chance: there's no update.
My questions are:
1. Is there a way to boot Fedora withou any graphical interface from GRUB (or anything else to skip the KDE)?
2. Is there a way to have the (cabled) network activated at boot *before* the graphical login?
3. What the he** is happening to my otherwise pefectly working laptop?
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"
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
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.
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.
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.)
Was running out of room on / and set in Yast to delete /tmp on startup. Also deleted /var/log and /var/tmp while logged in. Rebooted and now mouse and keyboard (both USB) not working. 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.
I know that in previous versions of OpenSuSE one could be in front of the screen/KBD/mouse get things started, and log into another session and get things started there and run some apps, and so on. Now with OpenSuSE 11.x I see no means in which to do so. Is there another way? Point being is that I want to run one application as one user session and another application in yet another user session. Either one I can get to by switching user accounts at one screen/kbd/mouse. Or through VNC. No need to run something like xen or VMWare and incur additional overhead. (It is next on my list to try though.
I have installed VMWare server 2 on a windows XP host. Then I installed Suse 11.2 on the VMWare server. For the most part everything seems to be working Ok. However, the key board will type two letters with every keystroke. I have used the the accessibility options to force a hack fix (slow keys). Also, the host pointer looses synchronization with the guest. Simple fix, running it off the screen forces VM to synchronize.
I have managed to find work around solutions, but overall it is annoying and effects my productivity (IE Ctrl+C takes about 2 seconds to register!!!). I would like to find better solutions. So I am looking for advice on how I could address these issues, I need advice on two methods:
1) Assuming the problems are within Linux, I will need to tweak/change the drivers for my mouse and keyboard, how would I do that?
2) Assuming the problem is with VMWare Tools, I will need to tweak/update the tools. Now, I have noticed that Suse has their own custom setup for the tools. Thus the documentation for tweaking the tools doesn't apply (ie cannot find vmware-tools-config.pl). So how would I go about playing with that side of things?
3) Ruled out the problem being with VMWare itself. Whenever I run the system in command line mode, or in the graphical installer, the keyboard works fine. It is only within KDE that the problems arise. Thus it is either X-Windows/KDE or the VMWare tools layer that is causing the problem. So my next question, is there a way of turning components off and on to narrow in on what component is causing the problem?
I was working on something important in 11.2 and did a "zypper up" in the terminal in the background. I wasn't paying that much attention to it, I believe it was an update to 11.3. After returning to the computer after about one hour the windows were behaving strangely and the machine wasn't very responsive. I decided to reboot. Now at login I have neither mouse nor keyboard. I have switched the keyboard to PS2 model, no difference. If someone could help me with booting to run level 3 from the grub menu perhaps I could change some settings there to make everything work. I really regret doing the update. It would be very important for me to be able to get back in to machine with spending as little time as possible on this. Could I reverse the update? This machine is very important for me and my family for their daily communication, but currently I have very little time to fix this. My quick fix was to install Kubuntu 10.10 so I could resume working, but I would really need to get back in to 11.2.
similar issue to Keyboard and mouse deactivated while installing - openSUSE ForumsI am installing from OpenSuse Linux 11.2 DVD. After I hit install, the screen with keyboard layout choice comes up, but neither my mouse nor my keyboard work on that screen (they did work until that screen)I have Vista and Win7 installed on separate partitions. My keyboard is a logitech S520 and mouse LX5, both wireless, connected to a USB portI did try to connect a wired keyboard and mouse over USB (front ports), did not work.
I have downloaded the latest Ubuntu.iso and extracted it to /tmp/ubuntu/ on my laptop. In the folder isolinux there is an isolinux.cfg file. I am trying to prepare a USB stick by modifying those files, so that when I boot from USB it opens VNC and puts a static IP of 192.168.1.125. How can I enable VNC and a static IP so that from my laptop I can do the installation of Ubuntu 11.04 without using a keyboard or mouse?[URL]..
I'm running suse 11.4 64bit and flash 22.214.171.124 My problem is that when I'm running flash if I give some keyboard input then my mouse (and only my mouse from what I can tell) will freeze for a second or so. This is most annoying when I'm goofing off playing a flash game that requires both keyboard and mouse inputs, since if I use the keyboard for anything I can't use the mouse for a second or so.I've tried searching the forums but I can't seem to find anything on this topic.
I have a recently installed version of opensuse 11.4 and I am unable to use the keyboard and the mouse at the same time. Whenever I type on the keyboard my mouse will become frozen for about 2 seconds and then will work as normal. It will happen with any key press. This problem became very apparent when trying to play first person shooters. I cannot move with the keyboard and look around with the mouse at the same time
I just upgraded (via backup and install) from 11.1 to 11.2. SaX2 was perfect for configuring my IBM SpaceSaver (Trackpoint) USB keyboard, and my Logitech Marble Mouse. Now that SaX2 doesn't have the keyboard or mouse, eh... modules?, I don't know how I can configure them the way I'd like.
What now? I'd rather not have to use the on-screen keyboard every time I start up openSUSE to turn off NumLock... Do I have to manually edit /etc/xorg.conf now?
I have a wireless keyboard with touchpad However the position of the mouse buttons is very unconfortable and so I would like to remap the mouse button to some kes on the keyboard.
I would like to use the media keys which are present on the keyboard. They are useless to me since most of the programs that I use have their own keyboard shortcuts for controls such as play, stop etc.
I mapped the keys using xev, and for instance I found that the "play" key mapped to keycode 172
