    norman...

    As I continue to try and comprehend... all I look at says there should be no problem, there is !
    This is not in accordance with what I have in my research:
    norman@norman-desktop:~$ ls -l /var/lib/alsa/asound.state
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 May 1 2012 /var/lib/alsa/asound.state -> /etc/asound.state
    Perhaps I have been looking at old antiquated information ... this is a link from where I expect the config file to be, to a different location... I am working on a link rather than the file and maybe the operating system is doing the same ??
    Or perhaps - likely - alsa has changed since then and the config file re-located to /etc/ is correct ?
    Will see what I can find out about why when where that symlink was instigated - never seen such in all the docs I have thus far encountered !

    Thanks for the updated status, response; nothing was out of order with permissions in the /home directory, nothing changed or fixed.
    Next I must come up with a test to probe where the problem might lie. Everything is right, but somewhere something is wrong !

    what to do, oh what to do.... I be thinn'n, see what I can come up with for "probing"
    I do not know, but I can find out

    Norman: There is a fly in the ointment !

    Ok, I just looked at "/var/lib/alsa/asound.state" in my 12.04 install ...guess what ?...That file exist where it is supposed to be ! ...Not as a symlink.
    As NiKTh is actively working this issue, and I have confidence his knowledge is greater in this respect than mine; Bring this situation to his awareness. I will await his advisement on how to correct this issue.

    Old images: to remove with synaptic (preferred method) remember to run "sudo updrade-grub" afterward> keep the present kernel and the one under it !
    The command uname -a in a terminal will tell you which kernel you are running....then:
    Go to Synaptic Package Manager select status on the left-lower pane and select installed on the left-upper pane and search for linux-image.
    select the ones you want deleted. listed in the right-upperpane.
    and mark for complete removal.
    Click the Apply button in the toolbar and then Apply in the summary window that pops up. Close Synaptic Package Manager.
    sudo update-grub
    In addition to linux-image, also remove old versions of linux-headers and linux-restricted-modules (if you have them).
    Don't forget ! In terminal run "sudo update-grub" to update the config files.

    gone back to this permissions issue -> later

    On the keyboard not working with grub, have you checked BIOS settings. I had exactly that issue with my BIOS and it reappears if I update BIOS as it reverts to defaults. There is a setting for USB keyboard & mouse that must be on.

    Norman; How about the crash course in computer science you are experiencing !

    See oldfred's directive last.

    Permissions -< clearing for a new foundation .... let me see this out put, from your home directory: simply;
    Code:
    ls -la
    Edit: what paths are established ?
    Code:
    echo $PATH
    there is a reason, just do not know the cause

    I have removed two linux images but not sure how to "remove old versions of linux-headers and linux-restricted-modules".
    These were 3.2.0-23 and 3.2.0-24. Now appearing in Semantic- three images. Not sure if I have to remove one of these ... or which:
    linux-image-generic 3.2.0-48.58
    linux-image- 3.2.0-47-generic 3.2.0-47.72
    linux-image- 3.2.0-48-generic 3.2.0-48.74

    In between 3.2.0-24 and 3.2.0-48 there were several others which I "removed" about 6 weeks ago ... I don't remember how, but not in Semantic.!!!

    sudo update-grub and then reboot. Grub only shows the one image.

    Code:
    norman@norman-desktop:~$ uname -a
    Linux norman-desktop 3.2.0-48-generic #74-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jun 6 19:43:26 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    Norman;
    Old kernels; the procedure to remove the linux-headers is the same as removing the linux-image. In the search box put "linux-headers"... Linux-restricted-modules; very likely you have none installed, thus none show up.
    To see what is on your system:
    Code:
    dpkg -l | grep linux-image
    dpkg -l | grep linux-headers
    synaptic should show same same !
    It is perfectly acceptable to use other means to remove the old kernels, synaptic is the more visual to preclude errors.

    Permissions: No fault found as usual... stonewalled as nothing I look at is amiss ..still looking for a means to test and probe for something "not right". At least we know all is right with what the system base is. Never seen nothing like it in my life !

    As "gedit" is hollering... let's see what the assigned permissions on "gedit" are:
    Code:
    ls -l /usr/bin/gedit

    inquiring minds want to know

    Re: 12.04 update - Grub - keyboard and mouse freeze

    Norman; Hey;
    The "rc" means the package has been removed, but config file remain... uh huh, ... you did not think things through !
    Fix:
    Code:
    dpkg --list |grep "^rc" | cut -d " " -f 3 | xargs sudo dpkg --purge
    To remove the old linux-headers packages, still prefer synaptic -complete removal takes care of the config file removal also.
    Just make sure you do not remover any header files (version to version comparison) for the corresponding linux-image files.
    Also for self assurance one can always look in the /boot partition (directory in your case).

    sudo update-grub

    Code:
    ls -l /boot
    I still recommend synaptic ... but if you want the "correct" command to properly remove old images and headers, I can do that too.

    it is all a learning experience

    Feeling a bit less embarrassed.... only a bit.
    I like Synaptic.... so happy to stay with it for lots of things.

    Code:
    norman@norman-desktop:~$ dpkg --list |grep "^rc" | cut -d " " -f 3 | xargs sudo dpkg --purge
