    12.04 and 12.10 don't support my keyboard/mouse?

    I don't get this. They're just USB devices on an Gigabyte AM3+ motherboard, but Ubuntu 10.04 supports them fine while 12.04/12.10 is completely unusable. They're not even powered on past the text boot menu of the lubuntu discs. Is this because the keyboard and mouse are likely USB 1.1? Actually, the keyboard is an Acer that came with my mother's new machine a couple months ago. The mouse is old as the hils though. $8 Microsoft mouse. (and yes they're wired devices)

    I had issues only in grub with my motherboard, until in BIOS I turned on keyboard & mouse USB support. It seemed both Windows & Ubuntu had standard drivers but grub relied on the limited drivers in BIOS. I was able to also use a USB to ps/2 convertor and that worked for grub.
