View Full Version : [ubuntu] Unable to type (laptop keyboard not detected)

April 18th, 2009, 09:58 AM
Please be informed that I'm a real newbie for Linux. But I'm somehow attracted to Linux for it's simplicity and usability.

Recently I downloaded and installed Ubuntu 8.10 in my 2 gb pen drive (using windows interface) and booted it for live experience. Everything went fine...., but the keyboard....

I'am using Lenovo y 500 series laptop and while I booted from pen drive I am unable to type anything, as it is not detected by Ubuntu. All the other features are working fine.

(P.S. all the hardware's are working fine with Win xp)

Hoping to get a clue

Thanking all in advance
