    Exclamation My keyboard and mouse don't work with Ubuntu?

    I tried dual booting my HP Pavilion a6000n with ubuntu on my Vista Home Premium machine. But I can't even get through installation. For some reason Ubuntu won't accept input from my mouse and keyboard. These are the mouse and keyboard that came with the computer. The keyboard is an Enhanced Multimedia PS/2 keyboard and the mouse is a PS/2 compatible. Now I don't know why they wouldn't work with ubuntu... but it's got me rather aggravated, as I would really like to have the linux side on my comp. If you know why I might be having this problem, please, let me know.

    They should work with ubuntu. Did you try rebooting with them re-plugged in a second time?
