I had applied all the updates available on 23rd Morning and Keyboard and mouse stopped working thereafter. The updates amounted to around 130 MBs in size. I can use the keyboard to select other items in Grub menu and it works upto the login prompt. I can change the console to Ctrl+Alt+F1 to F6 before the login screen. No response thereafter. I have set the autoloin after 10 Seconds and the notification asks me for enabling compositing.
When booted in recovery mode, the screen remains blank without the options like Repair Packages, Root shell, Resume etc.BTW, Ctrl+Alt+Del reboots the blank screen.What to do now? I thought that Reovery mode boot will give me the menu of these above items.The keyboard and mouse freeze just at login screen. So is it related to .gconfd or Gnome? Or can I unistall all the updates I had installed on 23rd December?At least how can I have the list of installed applications and my customisations in case of a reinstallation?Should I renstall and start all over again without any clue what I had done earlier?
I rebooted my system about a few days ago to find that whenever X was started, my mouse and keyboard would not function. I am unable to even switch to another tty when this occurs, however alt+sysrq+r will allow me to switch ttys again.
Xorg.0.log [ 70.287] X.Org X Server 1.10.1 Release Date: 2011-04-15
I recently updated from 8.10 to 10.4 by updating to 9.04 & 9.10 first. My problem is, everything seems to be booting normally but once the splash screen loads, it freezes and the keyboard and mouse both stop working. After the splash screen hangs for several minutes, the screen goes black. I am wondering if there is something I can do during the boot sequence to affect the process or if I could do something with a burnt copy of 10.4.
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 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.
Using 11.04 and GIMP 2.6.11. When I click the rulers to add a guide, no guide is added and clicking becomes unresponsive throughout gimp. Additionally, gimp steals all keyboard input from all other applications. I found out I can restore keyboard/mouse input to normal by simply minimizing the gimp main window.
I recently installed 10.04 on my Dell Inspiron 9300. After a clean install, the ATi drivers (for a Radeon x300) were automatically installed, and worked fine out of the box. Soon after all of this, I decided to run an update. Now, while my drivers are listed as installed in synaptic, nothing is recognized, not even the command "aticonfig" when typed in the terminal. When I try to access the Catalyst Control Center, it tells me that either I have no video drivers, or there's a problem with my card.Is there anything I can do about this? I've already tried reinstalling the drivers from synaptic.
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 installed the new suggested OpenSuse 11.4 updates and also the last KDE 4.6.5 updates from the Index of /repositories/KDE:/Release:/46/openSUSE_11.4 repository.The result: after restart and KDE relogin I ended up with a black screen. Only two windows (firefox and dolphin) were remaining on the black desktop. I was able to switch betwen these both windows but not able to open new ones (e.g. with Alt-F2).After login with IceWM, I switched off the composite manager and made a relogin to KDE. Now KDE runs, but of course without any desktop effects. When I switch on the desktop effect I can directly have a look on a black desktop.
Just updated the kernel to 126.96.36.199 as requested by Update Manager, and was rebooted into low graphics mode, the nvidia kernel module failed to load.I tried installing the linux-headers-188.8.131.52 but this made no difference. This could get ugly if such an early update mucks up
I got the weekly updates; libc files and an xorg core file from memory. Thinking now the xorg core possibly rewrote my xorg.conf!seems to have killed the restricted ATI driver. I can boot from kernel 184.108.40.206 but 27, the one I did the updates, after the Ubuntu progress bar I get a black screen. Booting from 26 I get the low resolution graphics guff and need to set it manually each time. Go to Sys->Admin->Hardware Drivers, and sure enough, the ATI driver is 'Not in Use'. Switch it on, try booting into 27, black screen.
Phew, back to 26, change to manual config, get back in, see ATI driver is off again, leave it off and leave manual graphics resolution and config, boot back into 27, everything is stretched and out of proportion!! But I can at least get in. Switch ATI driver on in there, reboot into 27, black screen.This is pretty urgent as my wife is end of semester uni stuff and needs this machine. Worse, so am I and have even more on the plate (but at least have a computer!),
I'm playing with dual monitors. I have an NVIDIA GT220 set up so that my monitor and my TV are running as extended desktops. Everything is working well enough, but there is one annoying bit I've noticed:
If I'm watching ..... on monitor 1 in fullscreen and working on monitor 2, clicking anything in monitor 2 kills full-screen in monitor 1. Is this something that can be fixed somehow or is it a hardwired "feature"?
I got a new lcd wide screed and updated the driver to my nivdia 7800gt card. First with the driver checked by ubuntu but that only did vga and cga modes.Next I went to nividia and pulled over their driver after that and it changing the kernel, Horror, it will not boot nor boot the recover from grub. When I try to reinstall 10.04 it starts ok and sort of stops.alt cont F1 does nothing live boot or from the 500g hard drive. I also have an 80g drive with 8.04 and when I boot from that it gives me my login screen less any icons names etc.I can feel my way through the login and again no icons.alt cont F1 gives me a big unix type terminal.I've also tried with the video card removed using the default video on the motherboard, different but similar.I've also re-flashed bios, I'd refreshed it previously so this bios was working.
I know that by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+NUMLOCK I can use the number pad as a pseudo mouse, but is it possible to force this condition at boot without needing to enter a key press?
(I'm putting a computer in my car running Ubuntu and have decided to do away with both the mouse and keyboard and control it from a joystick on the steering column. This has been wired to the circuit out of an old keyboard to mimic the arrow keys on the numeric keypad.)
I m using wireless keyboard and mouse with my PC. I have installed Win XP and Ubuntu both but I login in one at a time. In windows lower panel shows if my caps lock and numeric lock are on. but this is not so in case in Ubuntu. how to display same in Ubuntu panel.
I'm having some weird problems with my mouse and keyboard. I'll be moving the mouse and keyboard about and all of a sudden the keyboard won't respond and the mouse moves and is fully working, but it seems to be a problem with the desktop, more then the mouse, because it'll highlight stuff and certain stuff will open when I click them, but when I go down to the toolbar, and try to click applications, places, and system, it'll highlight it but not respond when I click it. This happens about every 45 Minutes, to 1 hour of time with ubuntu running [10.04] [Additional details]
- I'm using an HP Pavilion Dv6000 Laptop, 64 Bit Ubuntu 10.04 - My drivers are all up to date - Could it be because my Laptop gets really hot? But it dosen't happen ever when I'm running Windows, so I'm not so sure about that.
So my computer was slow with Karmic Koala, so I tried upgrading my build to Lucid Lynx 10.04.
Now I can't login because neither my keyboard nor mouse (and touch-pad) work. However, I can access the command mode (terminal?) though through the grub boot menu.
how I can get my mouse (and touch-pad) and keyboard to work with Ubuntu 10.04? My machine is an Acer Aspire 4730Z. I dual boot with Windows 7, and I'd prefer not to have to clear out the partition for Linux and reinstall.
I messed up my xorg.conf and tried to put in a clean one, but it doesn't seem to work. I'm not sure what went wrong. When X loads, the mouse cursor is not responding and my keyboard is dead too. I can't toggle to text mode either (Alt-Ctrl-F1).Hope the following files might explain what's wrong./var/log/Xorg.0.log
Code: [ 26.835] (II) config/udev: Adding input device Power Button (/dev/input/event2) [ 26.840] (II) No input driver/identifier specified (ignoring)
I've had these problems ever since upgrading to 10.10Boot up goes nowhere unless I touch the trackpad or keyboard. My clock says it's 10:00am but it's three in the afternoon, so I'm always having to resync with NTP. Music and video stutters with playback unless I touch the trackpad.I'm on a Toshiba NB205 netbook.These are pretty big problems. And I'm sure I'm not the only one using 10.10. Is there no fix out for this yet?
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.
The mouse, and keyboard, freezes at random times? When I search the discussion boards for a solution to this problem, it is overwhelming to see how many others are having the same difficulty, yet I haven't come across specific solution(s) to the problem. (One posting has over 180 pages of comments!) I am still using Jaunty but would like to move up to 10.04, which I have installed on a separate partition. Unfortunately, that partition can't be used by my family because it freezes at random times! Naturally, I am unable to get any more updates with Jaunty. (I never had problem with Jaunty freezing.) Incidentally, I tried Linux Mint, which was a adaptation of Ubuntu 10.04 and had the same problem.
When booting to the live cd, I have keyboard function enough to choose the proper entry to load os. The os starts loading and I can use keyboard to choose language, keyboard etc. About the time it gets to what time zone I'm in, it freezes. No mouse and no keyboard. I have tried this with both Ubuntu 10.04 and Mint 10. My hdd with Windows XP works fine. There are a lot of complaints and requests for help on the 'Net about this but no answers. I have Mint 10 on my main computer and have used Ubuntu for a year or so, meaning I have been able to load and use them with no problems. I have scoured my BIOS for any changes needed and can't find any. Neither USB nor PS2 keyboards or mice work. I have seen some posts about editing xorg.conf or the grub but how can I do that when I have no control after a second or two.
I have just installed Xubuntu 9.10 for the second time on my IBM Thinkpad T30. After both installations it froze on the boot screen, then after a restart, the GRUB boot menu was displayed.
Selecting the default option, I could log into a Command Line Terminal. Typing "startx" (without the ""), Xfce started but then an error dialog box popped up with the message 'Xfce power manager. HAL daemon is not running'
There was no Keyboard response or Mouse movement. The only way out was a power off.
There have been similar posts with the same problems but there has been no real solutions. (One post has been "Solved" by installing Kubuntu, but that is not a satisfactory solution)
I will try a minimalised install, but I'm not sure what packages are required to install the Xfce desktop.
I have an AMD 64 Dual Core 4200 w/2 Gigs RAM. On Jaunty, after adding some software through Synaptic (don't remember which software), I lost the use of both my mouse and keyboard at the Login screen. I can't even click on what I want to use (Gnome, KDE, etc.) I had to install the i386 version of Jaunty in Windows just to get into my Linux files. I tried going into the Initialize commands file (advice from Ubuntu forums) and add them, but still no keyboard or mouse.
