View Full Version : [ubuntu] Keyboard won't work at login screen

November 3rd, 2009, 05:11 AM

I have a Thinkpad T61 series laptop that I've dual booted with Ubuntu and Windows XP. I recently upgraded Ubuntu to 9.10 via the update manager. However, now I cannot use my keyboard at the login screen. I try to type in my password, and nothing happens. Keyboard shortcuts like enter to select my user name from the list don't work. I've even tried using the on-screen keyboard, to no avail. The result is that I can't log in. Does anyone know how I might diagnose and fix this problem?

I tried booting into an older kernel version and the problem persists. Can anyone help me?
