View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Keyboard Problem after installing 8.10

October 30th, 2008, 09:04 PM
My laptop keyboard will not work after installing 8.10.

The mouse pad kind of works (no menus on right click)

Update manager says there is 1 update available - libftgl2
When I try to install it a message comes up saying - Could not grab keyboard.

I can left click (which is the only thing that works) on icons such as Web browser but cannot click on the Applications and Systems menus to bring them up.

Please help??

Fixed! Well it kind of fixed itself! :confused:

I rebooted the machine a few times and nothing had changed, then this morning I switched it on and I can type, the mouse pad works and all the menus are accessable.

So all I can say is that it fixed itself!! :)

I Have the same problem, but it did not solve compeletly after rebooting. It actually comes and goes, but I have no clue why.

I'm having the same problem, it just locks up for no apparent reason. If anyone has found a solution please help me out.
