    Install 13.4 then software update now no typing after login

    [Sorry - typo - I have 13.10 (saucy) installed] yes, an odd one. I installed 13.10 (after running 12.4) and when prompted by Software Updater to update I said sure. After reboot I login fine but when I launch Terminal, FireFox, LibreOffice, Thunderbird - I cannot type - no delete key, no backspace no Return/Enter, nothing - except for one exception - the Password field on a brewer page works!

    Also, the Keyboard Layout Chart works fine as does Xterm. After ctl-alt-F1 I can also type at the prompt just fine.

    I don't see anything odd in Xorg.0.log or lighted.log. Any ideas? Thanks, -don

    <add> One possible hint, I tried logging in as "Guest" and everything worked. I them moved my .gnome2* .bash* .compiz* fontconfig to a directory and logged out. When I logged in no difference... </add>

    <edit>Corrected typo to 13.10</edit>
