    Recent update from 5.4.0-42-generic to 5.4.0-44-generic seems buggy

    Updated a minor use laptop to 5.4.0-44-generic and seem to be having quite a few problems. Main problem is keyboard is no longer working with this kernel. Another problem is the top right hand icon for details, settings and shutdown, will only do 'details'. Was able to login with on screen keyboard, but don't seem to be able to do the fix after. Wireless mouse is working, but don't how to get on screen keyboard to work after login. Using the unity desktop.
    Main laptop is waiting to update, but holding off for now. Problem laptop is a ACER Aspire E15. I think I know the fix for the keyboard from google, but not how to input it without keyboard. Settings seem to be wonky, so that is out.

    Was able to use a wireless keyboard, but the usual fix of installing 'xserver-xorg-input-all' and rebooting did not help. Settings icon does seem to be working now. Have been using this laptop since 14.04. Keyboard/touchpad does work in grub and on kernel 5.4.0-42, but not when using kernel 5.4.0-44.
