    Lenovo Y560 keyboard not working after update to Kubuntu 11.04

    Hello eveybody,

    I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Y560.

    I upgraded recently to Kubuntu 11.04 64-bit from Kubuntu 10.10 64-bit.

    Notebook's keyboard is not working anymore.

    I can still use the touchpad w/o problems.

    Any idea?

    Thanks.

    I'm attempting to install 11.04 onto a Lenovo Ideapad y460p (closely related model), and the keyboard never works. The mouse is fine, but I have to use a USB keyboard. It's very annoying.

    hi there,
    although i am very rookie in linux, i had the same problem.
    i am also using a lenovo y560 laptop i just wanted to install ubuntu to my comp.
    i figured out that, if my mouse is connected at the beginning of the installation, my keyboard does not work. so, i may suggest you reinstall ubuntu without connecting any mouse or external keyboard.

    on the other hand, after i made a successfull installation of ubuntu, sometimes i couldn't use my keyboard as well. still looking for the solution...

    i hope this works for you,

    I'm having the same problem here on my Lenovo Y560. What was strange, is that I was using Fedora for quite a while (until I was having too many updates to the kernel causing incompatibilities with vmware) and decided to move to Ubuntu. When I did the initial install from Fedora, I had no issues. But now that I'm trying to live boot from the cd (11.04 and 11.10), I'm having no luck using the Keyboard.
