View Full Version : [ubuntu] Keyboard stopped working in X (GDM/GNOME)

April 26th, 2009, 10:50 PM

this evening my keyboard stopped working in the graphical environment. I might accidentally have uninstalled some library, but canít figure out which one :( After a reboot the keyboard didn't react.

When booting in console mode it is working, though.

The mousewheel also does not work anymore.

Thank you,

Simply plug out the cable of kb, put it back in after 10 seconds, and see if this helps to work the keyboard, during the X session.

On the other wise:

It seems that your mouse is working.

goto > System > Preferences > Keyboard

See if the Layout and Keyboard models are correct.

Other way round:

try out the X in the rescue mode. Might help u out.

Hi KhurramM,

thank you for your reply. Unfortunately I couldnít get it to work following your suggestion, either.

Iíve reinstalled the system. That went much quicker than figuring out the issue.
