Ubuntu :: Keyboard & Trackpad Both Immediately Stop Working?

Oct 16, 2010

I've installed Ubuntu 10.04 on a Packard Bell laptop and I'm having some trouble with the trackpad and keyboard. At the login screen they both work fine, I can move the cursor and type in my password. But after I login they both immediately stop working and I have to use a USB mouse and keyboard.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Keyboard And Trackpad Not Working Properly After Upgrade

May 6, 2010

My keboard was working perfectly (backlight, inverse FN) until upgrade from karmic to lucid. Now neither backlight neither inverting FN (in pommed.conf) works- backlight is always off, FN is default OSX-like.
Trackpad worked "almost superb" (missing click with one finger and drag with another!!) but after upgrade (=no mode udev) event number changes with every reboot so I cannot put configuration based on /dev/input/eventX to Xorg.conf. How can I make it have the same number after reboot now?

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.

Debian Hardware :: USB Keyboard Stop Working Sometimes

Aug 4, 2015

I'm running a SuperMicro GPU server with nvidia GFX 750 card. Debian Sid with last update this morning. The server is far away from the screen. So i'm using 5m active USB 2.0 cable with one Belkin powered hub. All USB device work always correctly.

But sometimes, my keyboard (a logitech illuminated) doesn't work anymore. I need to disconnect and reconnect it. Backlight keep on but no key work. I can't change the numlock or caps lock too.

Apparently, this appear mainly (only?) when i use the keyboard (for shortcut or typing text in vim).

I've tried with and without autosuspend (setting manually or from GRUB).

I just install CentOS 5.6 on my computer. My mouse and keyboard stops working in 2 cases: 1. copy files from usb (FAT and NTFS); 2. update my system (specifically, when downloading update packages). But the system's still working. It seems weird but I can do nothing but reboot every time.

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).

Slackware :: XFCE Keyboard Shortcuts Stop Working

May 22, 2010

I'm running XFCE on slackware64-current. I've had this problem for a number of months now. Every so often, XFCE will decide to not recognize key combinations that are mapped to keyboard shortcuts. For example, hitting ALT+F2 will not bring up the xfrun4 dialog box. This happens to all of my keyboard shortcuts (e.g., volume keys).

For now, I've resorted to going into the keyboard shortcut settings and double-clicking on each assignment and then hitting ok. This seems to correct whatever corruption is occurring. What's even more unusual is that all of the settings appear to be intact in the settings box and even in the .xml file.

My Thinkpad R32 keyboard & trackpad will not work when booted off the HD with 9.04, I can plug in an external USB keyboard & that works fine.
If I start the laptop from a Ubuntu LiveCd the keyboard & trackpad work fine.
There must be some system file disabling the onboard keyboard, I have used Keyboard Preferences to try different keyboard models.

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.

General :: Fedora 14 On Dell Inspiron 2600 No Keyboard Or Trackpad Response

Feb 20, 2011

I am able to boot Fedora 14 to the GUI, log in on the keyboard, see the desktop, and then I get no response from the laptop's keyboard or trackpad.

I do not know how to obtain hardware specifics on my keyboard or touchpad, so perhaps that would be good info for me to start with...

BTW my ultimate goal is to run an Amahi server on the laptop. 2600 has a pentium III 1.13GHz processor and 512Mb RAM

Ubuntu / Apple :: Trackpad Not Working On Macbook Pro 5,3 After Update To 11?

May 25, 2011

I have a dual-booting MacBook 5,3 which I was running 10 on with no trouble. I just upgraded to 11, and the trackpad doesn't work at all - no clicks, no movement. I've restarted several times - no change. Any ideas as to what I can do?I did play with my drivers a bit in 10 to get the trackpad to behave a bit more smoothly - but that was a while ago, and I'm not sure exactly what I can do.

Ubuntu / Apple :: No Wireless Networks Shown - Trackpad Not Working

Jan 10, 2010

I recently used BootCamp on my MacBook (2.1) to partition my hdd and install Ubuntu (karmic), and I am having trouble with the wireless connection. On the mac partition it works fine, but on Ubuntu there are no wireless networks shown in the network-dialog. Previously I had only a Linux-partition on the same machine, and this was not a problem. Also the trackpad does not work at all. Does anyone know what to do about the network connection? Also I should mention that I first installed the AMD64-version of Ubuntu, which worked fine even though my macbook uses intel. Im tempted to just go back to the amd-version, any views on that?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Trackpad Not Working After Waking Up From Sleep On Natty?

May 15, 2011

I have had a issue with the trackpad not working (cursor does not move, does not click) after I wake up my MacBook Pro 4,1 from sleep. I am pretty sure this is an X issue and not a driver issue because if I log out the trackpad works again. This is also sporadic. Sometimes it occurs, sometimes it does not. Is there some configuration I need to set to fix this?

Debian Installation :: Acer C720 Trackpad Not Working?

Aug 29, 2015

I just installed version 8.1 on my c720 and everything works out of the box except the track pad. I am new to Linux so I am lost on how to check for the correct drivers or any other solution.

I have heard that the newer kernel versions added built in support but I am not sure if changing that will cause compatibility problems with any other program that I install later.

Debian Hardware :: USB Devices Not Working Immediately (HP Envy 17 N120nd)

Feb 5, 2016

I have problem with several usb devices plugged to laptop HP Envy 17 n120nd, new laptop with Skylake. Because of the Skylake I have Debian Testing installed (instead of Windows, hence no dual boot). The problem is as follows. When I plug an usb device such as memory stick, usb storage and wired mouse, none of them are detected, despite the fact that lights of these devices are on (except the mouse as I will explain later).

But when I reboot the laptop, while the usb devices stay plugged in the laptop, then they usually are detected (hence not always) and works without problem. Except the mouse: after completing the reboot the light of the mouse went off, indicating that there is no power. Replugging the mouse results in power for the mouse and it works like a charm too.

What can be the cause? And, maybe more important. I contacted HP, but they give no support for Linux.

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

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.

I have uninstalled Office, rebooted and re-installed but it is still happening on native odt docs. Is this a common recent issue?

I have updated to 10.10 and now my ir remote is simulating keyboard arrow keys which is causing problems in applications like Boxee. The weird thing is if I stop lircd it still simulates the keyboard arrow keys.

(Here are all the IR config files)


# /etc/lirc/hardware.conf
#Chosen Remote Control
