    Thanks! I saw it now. All doubts cleared
    Users can easily damage their systems by using sudo su if they aren't experienced enough.

    Re: chromium not responding to typing/keyboard

    Just to add one piece of info.

    I have not changed anything to my setup as I want to have it basic to follow how some lubuntu bugs evolve and run some tests if possible. So I'm still using ibus (and temp use Firefox for now, unless I want Chrome for some reason and ibus exit at each new session).
    Code:
    bapoumba@SonyBlue:~$ cat .xinputrc
    # im-config(8) generated on Sun, 27 Apr 2014 13:16:20 +0200
    run_im ibus
    # im-config signiture: 50608d523caf43cf9d76a497964075dc  -
    So I guess the file was modified for you both, and not created. April 27th sounds about right for my fresh install over my upgraded lubuntu 14.04.
    Code:
    bapoumba@SonyBlue:~$ ls -l /etc/default/im-config
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 313 janv.  7 14:40 /etc/default/im-config

    Good observation. From your evidence, the file .xinputrc is created when installed to HDD.

    So post #8 really only proves it is not present when using the Live USB, and then is created when the Language Support was changed.

    If ibus is active, then .xinputrc line #2 should be run_im ibus:

    Code:
    lubuntu@lubuntu:~$ cat .xinputrc 
    # im-config(8) generated on Sat, 31 May 2014 17:31:04 +0000
    run_im ibus
    # im-config signiture: 56c4c2e8242f2351069c2773ada22f46  -

    From LIVE USB test:

    Initial contents of home folder:
    Code:
    lubuntu@lubuntu:~$ ls -a
    .             .bashrc  Desktop    Music     Public     .Xauthority
    ..            .cache   Documents  Pictures  Templates  .xscreensaver
    .bash_logout  .config  Downloads  .profile  Videos     .xsession-errors
    Change ibus to none:
    Code:
    lubuntu@lubuntu:~$ ls -a
    .             .cache     Downloads  Public       .xinputrc
    ..            .config    Music      Templates    .xscreensaver
    .bash_logout  Desktop    Pictures   Videos       .xsession-errors
    .bashrc       Documents  .profile   .Xauthority
    contents of .xinputrc after changing ibus to none:
    Code:
    lubuntu@lubuntu:~$ cat .xinputrc 
    # im-config(8) generated on Sat, 31 May 2014 17:29:32 +0000
    run_im xim
    # im-config signiture: 5e3081cd9a7ac434f9b733e0d5d7e237  -

    contents of .xinputrc modified again after changing back to ibus:
    Code:
    lubuntu@lubuntu:~$ cat .xinputrc 
    # im-config(8) generated on Sat, 31 May 2014 17:31:04 +0000
    run_im ibus
    # im-config signiture: 56c4c2e8242f2351069c2773ada22f46  -

    Re: chromium not responding to typing/keyboard

    I think I might have found the problem with my keyboard... At first I thought the keyboard had a wire loose but it wasnt loose when I took apart the unit.. I was browsing around on the search engine of Google and something came to mind And I wonder if it was something to do with the Universal Access settings of ubuntu. This is for those who are having major issues such keyboard is not responding or responding too slow. Go to All Settings>Universal Access and look for Slow Keys. There should be a on/off selection option for that; turn it off and your keyboard should respond like it should.

    How I discovered this was I was doing a typing test in text editor, well no response well as soon as I held down the key after about 2 seconds later that key responded and started to repeat. Weird right? So I wondered if it was the Universal settings and it was.

    For those who are having issues with their keyboard not responding, it has nothing to do with the Keyboard Input method, like the Ibus and none option. I already tried both of those....doesnt work. This is only for user who have different kinds of keyboards in different languages... Also the on-board keyboard has nothing to do with this as well....

    Please spread this discoverey to friends who are having the similar issue. Obviously this happened after an update

    I hope this helps many people who had the same issue as I did for about 2 weeks LOL

    PS: Don't waste your time reinstalling, you're still gonna have the same issue 0_e

    @Mike_Hedden : in my case, only Chromium is affected, no other application, text editors, terminal, Firefox, all of them work as expected.

    That's OK. If you find it again, we can move your posts over there.

    Permanent, in that once set, you don't need to repeat this.

    Its unclear to me if "ibus exit" needs to be repeated every session. I see in the bug report that "Killing ibus from a terminal with 'ibus exit' is a temporary fix." Any clarification on that?
    I just tried this on my Lubuntu 14.04 install, and the keyboard in Chromium worked for a couple of minutes then stopped.

    Previously had installed Chrome from their site and it really didn't work so I said sod it and try Chromium instead.

    I had Xubuntu 14.04 on for a short period but installed Lubuntu instead. I don't really like Xubuntu ... it's a bit clunky and nowhere near as fast as LXDE on my 1Gb netbook.

    But in Xubuntu 14.04 Chrome worked just fine. I'm beginning to regret installing Lubuntu again. Too buggy, not enough fixes.
