View Full Version : [SOLVED] Upgrade to Lucid on 5,3 keyboard not responding
March 5th, 2010, 10:16 AM
I upgraded to Lucid with update manager last night.
Everything seemed to go ok - except now the keyboard has stopped working!
Anyone seen this already?

Yeah, I'm currently having the same issue on my iMac. Keyboard only works for about 2 seconds after plugging it in, then just stops :-?

According to this bug:
It appears that the problem is caused by the mouseemu package.
I logged in using the virtual keyboard, removed that package - and my keyboard is now working again :)

Sweet! That seemed to do the trick. Thanks!

On my PowerBook 12 1Ghz is solved in the same way!

@alpine4 this is not a trick, since mouseemu on macs are very important... :(

I'm running 10.4 in a VMWare environment, I haven't rebooted the virtual machine in a while, but I just had to, and I had the keyboard-not-responding issue;
Additionally: The on-screen keyboard app kept crashing as soon as it opened until I booted off the install DVD with the onscreen keyboard set at the initial menu.
I don't have mouseemu installed...

I've also found out that if you have a line on /etc/modprobe.d/options.conf:
options hid pb_fnmode=2
Change it to:
#options hid pb_fnmode=2
And save. If you have no access to your keyboard, ssh into your machine and change it that way. Suddenly all your usb will just work!
