Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Keyboard And Mouse Stop Functioning With ODT Docs

Nov 3, 2010

Keyboard and sometimes mouse stops functioning whilst using oowriter - it only happens with writer. I lose control for up to 30 secs and then it comes back - but it keeps happening. This is on a 10.10 machine with standard install. I have changed keyboard from wireless to wired and back to wireless with new batteries. I have uninstalled Office, rebooted and re-installed but it is still happening on native odt docs. Is this a common recent issue?

General :: Stuck At Log In Screen With Mouse And Keyboard Not Functioning

Mar 26, 2011

I am COMPLETELY new to Linux.I started a computer class recently and I started teaching myself PERL.My teacher had mentioned to me that it's far better for some reasons (he did not elaborate) to write code in a Unix system. So I got Ubuntu 10.10.I installed it along side my windows 7.After I setup my windows (had to reformat the disk) I decided to boot up into Ubuntu to set that up. I installed the necessary drivers that it required, and the updates. I was asked to restart the system so I did so.

It did not even shut down or restart my system.I waited patiently 15 minutes...30 minutes 1 hour... until I finally decided to hit the reset button on my PC. Then when I'd boot back in to Ubuntu afterwards, it would stay at the log in screen and my mouse wouldn't budge and nor is my keyboard recognized by Ubuntu.Im really frustrated and I've been searching for answers for the whooole day and I just can't seem to find something well explained. Im completely new to Ubuntu so I don't know where to enter any code in a cmd line or such.

1)Reformatted my harddrive to install windows 7 on it
2)Set up windows 7 and then booted into Ubuntu.
3) Set up Ubuntu and installed necessary drivers and updates
4) Reset the computer and waited for an hour for the reset to happen but nothing happened.
5) Manually reset my pc and booted into ubuntu
6) Stuck at log in screen with mouse and keyboard not functioning (unable to use ubuntu).

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Mouse And Keyboard Stop Working?

Jun 7, 2010

I was having a problem with the mouse and keyboard randomly failing to work after upgrading to version 10.04. I tried both the 32 and 64 bit versions. The problem went away after I edited the file /etc/default/grub and changed the following line:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash noapic nolapic"

If you are unable to open a terminal window, try doing the following

Log into you account.
sudo nano /etc/default/grub

After saving your changes and exiting nano you can reboot by using the halt command.(FYI Ctrl+Alt+F7 gets you back into X server -- but you need to reboot for the change to take effect) Update: problem recurred. I had to do Ctrl+Alt+F1 to log into a console. I executed 'ps aux | more' to find the PID for X.Using the PID I restart X with 'sudo kill -S SIGTERM <PID>'.Once it started up again it was fine.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mouse And Keyboard Stop Working With 9.10 AMD 64 Bit?

Jan 11, 2010

System was running fine under 8.04 but decided to update. The live CD works fine but after install, the Mouse and Keyboard stop working under 9.10. Even the keyboard power button is off. Disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard or the mouse does not . AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ PS/2 Keyboard and PS/2 mouse

Everything else seems OK but how would I know without the keyboard or mouse. The keyboard turns off right before the first Ubuntu screen. The Numlock will go off and then nothing. Tried to run dpkg - fix broken packages after booting to repair. All I get is fail to fetch http: (whatever )Could not resolve us.archive.ubuntu.com. Update: Alt-F3 ... then Booting to terminal mode does not disable the keyboard.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Freezes Randomly - Keyboard And Mouse Stop Responding

Feb 4, 2011

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:

Ubuntu :: Mouse And Keyboard Stop Working When X Server Starts?

Aug 28, 2009

I randomly started up my laptop one day and the mouse and keyboard stopped responding once GDM's login screen came up. Everything works fine from the console, but even if I run startx from the login shell the mouse and keyboard do not work, even though everything else in GNOME runs perfectly.

I am using an HP dv6426us laptop running Ubuntu 9.04 (i686 architecture with the 2.6.28-15-generic kernel). Below is a copy of my xorg.conf file, just in case there might be something wrong with that. I will try and put more information on, but seeing as I have to use a different computer to post this thread, copying over log files and stuff is difficult for the moment (though I am going to try and copy them over to a flash drive).

Ubuntu :: KDE Apps Stop Responding To Mouse/keyboard But Plasma Still Works?

Jul 30, 2011

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.

Software :: USB Keyboard And Mouse Randomly Stop Working In Fedora 12?

Jun 17, 2010

I'm running Fedora 12 on a Shuttle SN78SH7. Updates are all current from the Fedora repositories. I'm using the Nouveau driver for the Shuttle's on-board Nvidia graphics adapter. At random intervals (1 to 5 times per day), my USB keyboard and the buttons on my USB mouse stop working and the desktop freezes (i.e. GKrellm graphical data stops updating, partially painted windows don't complete). However, I can still move the mouse pointer around the desktop. This only seems to happen when I am actually using the computer from the console. It has never happened while the system was turned on, but not being used.

When the mouse and keyboard stop working, I can log in from another computer via ssh. Once the computer gets in this state, the only way to fix things is either to reboot remotely using ssh or to cycle power. I've run low level hardware diagnostics - everything checks out OK. This computer only has USB and firewire inputs. No PS2 jacks.

Ubuntu :: The Mouse And The Keyboard Will Stop Responding And The Screen Sometimes Get Divided Into 4 Smaller Quadrants?

Jul 15, 2011

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.

Fedora Hardware :: Keyboard / Mouse Stop Responding; Replugging Isn't Registered?

Jan 23, 2011

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.


Fujitsu LZ945230BH1 USB Mouse
Microsoft Arc Bluetooth Wireless USB Keyboard
Running Fedora 14.

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?

OpenSUSE :: Use Similar To The XP Fax Client / Fax Printer - Docs On The Hylafax Site Stop At 2008

Apr 28, 2010

I'm after something simple to use similar to the XP fax client/fax printer. Hylafax seems an overkill. HPlip app seems to expect an HP printer/scanner or fax machine. Is it true that hplip is an HP exclusive? I'm using opensuse 11.2 with kde 4.3.1, but I would consider gfax. Gfax is not on my DVD. The docs for that on the hylafax site stop at 2008. Is an up to date Gfax a possibility? I see most of the hylafax posts in the archive get redirected to the hylafax website. I've been thru most of that stuff, but much it's out of date. Hylafax seems to be the basis for other apps.

I'm signed up for the Hylafax-user list, but I didn't see any hylafax archives to browse thru. If you are still with me here, I have an opensuse 11.2 with a dial-up internet. From the DVD I installed from I installed hylafax-4.4.4-19.3.i586 and client. That install load a bunch of fax tools at places the hylafax docs don't expect. Besides that their docs only go up to opensuse 10.2, tho there is some stuff or enterprise suse.

Ubuntu :: Caps Lock Indicator On Keyboard Not Functioning

Jul 17, 2010

I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04. The Caps lock indicator on my keyboard is not working (always off). The Num lock indicator works fine. I have the same problem with other keyboards. The other keyboards work with Windows & DOS. This isn't a show-stopper, but I'd like to get it corrected as it's problematic when typing in passwords, etc. that have hidden fields.

Debian :: Power Button On Keyboard Not Functioning

Jun 27, 2015

I recently upgraded to Jessie and am using the LXDE desktop. I like using the keyboard power button to shutdown the system but it does not work. I looked at /etc/acpi and everything appears okay to my untrained eyes, but there is obviously something not working correctly. Do I need to edit some config file or install some code in order to use the power button for shutdown ? When I look at Services Settings I see that acpid power management is selected.

Debian Hardware :: Keyboard Status LEDs Non-functioning In X

Aug 8, 2014

My keyboard status lights (Caps Lock, Num Lock, Scroll Lock) are non-functioning when in an X environment. The lights turn on and off as would be expected at the terminal.

xset can turn on the scroll lock, but but not the Caps or Num Lock.
numlockx can toggle the Num Lock light.

The functions of the keys on the keyboards works normally, it's just the lights don't update accordingly.

I have already run dpkg -reconfigure keyboard-configuration to no avail. and this is the information that /etc/default/keyboard has about my keyboard

Code: Select all$ grep -vE "^#|^$" /etc/default/keyboard

The keyboard itself is a Corsair K70, if that matters.

Fedora Hardware :: Keyboard Randomly Stops Functioning?

May 19, 2011

Im Using FC14 and i like it so far. been trying around a bit and made searches for my problem but either im blind or im the only one with this problem (which i doubt) i have a problem of the keyboard "dying" on me mid using it. it doesnt seem to matter what im doing, it still goes dead on me sporadicly. ive tried changing to 4 different keyboards. PS2 and usb keyboards. but all 4 keeps sporadicly dying on me until i reboot and it works again until its dies.im wondering if the problem is in the hardware detection somewhere..if you need hardware information it would be nice if you posted commands so i understand what you need

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Changes When Using Lucid / Stop It To Do So?

Apr 25, 2010

I has a look at the release candidate today as a live DVD and found that my keyboard settings were incorrect. I was obliged to remove the USA settings from the keyboard layout.

When I reverted to Karmic I found that it was necessary to correct the keyboard settings back to UK as somehow or other the settings from the live DVD registered.

It might be worth watching for this when testing/using live DVD before full adoption

Ubuntu :: Mouse Buttons Stop Working?

Feb 6, 2010

I am running 9.10 (Karmic) on a Compaq Presario CQ60 laptop with Nvidia graphics. I have installed the -185 driver which has solved most problems. However every so often the system seems to lose track of the mouse button state. The first symptom of this is that all mouse movements on text are treated as if the left button is being held down: mouse movement selects text rather than just moving the graphics cursor. I am using a M$ optical mouse.

I have tried:unplugging and replugging the mouse using Ctl-Alt-F1 to go into a console and Ctl-Alt-F7 to go back to the GUI I am able to shut down all of the open windows normally using the keyboard, but the only way I have so far found to get the GUI working again is to reboot the system.

Hardware :: Mouse Won't Stop Clicking?

Aug 24, 2010

I had a problem a while back with hard freezes on my laptop, turned out the thermal paste between the CPU and heatsink was a small circle less than 1 cm across. A new coat of thermal paste fixed that, but talking with a local Linux geek, he said that it looks like the UHCI Host Controller has taken permanent damage, which might explain at least some of this problem.

I have a USB optical mouse. The last time I used it was on Fedora 10, shortly after Fedora 11 came out. Now I'm using Fedora 13, and all my other USB devices work fine (Cruzer Micro, Targus Numpad, Seagate external). The problem with the mouse is that after a little bit of use (usually 5-10 minutes) it starts rapidly clicking. On the desktop or in any program with highlighting (gedit, OpenOffice, etc) it does a perpetual click and drag. In GIMP it seems to just rapidly click (moving it fast enough will leave white space between colors). The only way to fix it is to pull the cable out, and then it usually doesn't work until after I reboot. I don't have any other USB mice around to test with, and money is a bit too tight right now to buy one, or else I would try that. The touchpad works flawlessly, but it doesn't have the fine control I need for most of the things I do.

Ubuntu :: Massive Lag - Stop Moving The Mouse The Video Gets Jumpy

Nov 16, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed at work on my Dell Optiplex 755, which runs perfect. So I decided to install Ubuntu on my home desktop, which so far has been a mistake. Booting up takes almost 5 minutes, after I login it takes about 2 minutes to get to my desktop, typing in any application (even a shell) is horribly lagged, almost to the point where the PC is unusable. I also get extreme lag when executing programs, or just simply clicking a submit button. It will take 2-10 seconds to actually click or execute. The weird part is visual effects extra works perfect and smooth.

CPU: i7 920
Ram 6Gb's
HD1: Veloci Raptor 300Gb 10k RPM
HD2: WD 1.5Tb (Storage)
Video: MSI N250GTS 1Gb

SmartD shows my Raptor healthy, here are the read test speeds.

Min Read Rate 7.6Mb/s
Max Read Rate 128.2 Mb/s
Avg Read Rate: 105.5 Mb/s
Avg Access Time: 8.6ms

Note: The graph has quite a few drop downs (as you can see the minimum is very low). I've also ran badblocks on the drive which came back with 0 errors. Do I need a special driver for my hard drive? I'm attempting to watch a movie on [URL] and it works fine as long as I continually move my mouse, when I stop moving the mouse the video gets jumpy.
