I kind of thought this would show up somewhere else, but I can't seem to find any threads similar to this issue.
I am using a Macbook Pro 5,3 and I am dual booting OSX 10.9 and Xubuntu 13.10. I just got my graphics card and my wireless card working, and I fixed an issue with the power off/reboot buttons. Just after the power/reboot fix, however, I've noticed that Xubuntu will randomly stop recognizing my input devices. All of them.
This sometimes happens before I log in, sometimes when I open a web browser, but almost always when I open a Terminal. My keyboard shuts off, my trackpad, even my external mouse no longer works. No input is allowed, and so I am forced to force a shutdown by holding the power button. I suspect this can't be good for my system
Any help would be appreciated. As I just mentioned, I just installed Xubuntu, so if I need to downgrade or reinstall or something, I'm not entirely opposed to that. However, I'm hoping it doesn't come to that. Thanks!
