View Full Version : usb mouse and keyboard not working after video upgrade

September 7th, 2017, 03:39 PM
I just installed Xubuntu 16.04 on my Dell OptiplexGX 620 Dual boot system with Windows& Ultimate
Streaming videos from Amazon did not have good resolution, but evetything else seemed OK. I queried about the problem and entered the following commands (as root):

apt-get update
apt-get install --reinstall xserver.org-video-intel xserver-xorg-core

now when the system boots up my USB mouse and keyboard are not working. I'm getting two messages which say that there is a system error.


notes: on Windows the video and everything else works fine. I can boot in recovery mode, and the keyboard works fine.

Well once again I just gave up and reinstalled from the live CD. For some reason the video problem solved itself too. I did not do a clean install--I did not format the root or home partitions.
