I am facing exactly the same problem.
I had no issue during the upgrade from 8.04.
I launched dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg from a console but it did not help.

Hi again,

I found on a local Ubuntu forum ( http://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/viewtopic.php?pid=2185072 ) a turn around to move forward in the loging process and access to my desktop. It is not satisfactory...
I kill the X process and it restarts by itself with the proper settings for the keyboard and the mouse

In a terminal (CTR-ALT-F1) log in and


pkill -9 X

Hope it can help to fix the bug.
