    Re: Ubuntu Installation....

    hi,
    probably you got a bad X config (/etc/X11/xorg.conf)

    Since you installed that problem should not exist on your live CD. Try to boot from it a check what is it's xorg.conf (under Section "InputDevice") or at least post your actual xorg.conf here so any obvious error could be track.

    good luck.

    Re: Ubuntu Installation....

    If you are having problems with the regular installation of Xorg I recommend reconfiguring it. I am guessing this will fix the bug. You can reconfigure it with this command.

    sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

    There is a part that will configure your keyboard so I am guessing this will do the trick.

    Hope this helps,

    Unhappy Re: Ubuntu Installation....

    Well FRND THANX FOR UR NICE SUGGETION.....

    bUT,,,,,,, the problem is just like below.....

    i hav made a live cd of Ubuntu.....and when i run the cd i got one desktop screen having two things on desktop....installl and examples icon.......and i found all things running well except keyboard....i opned text editor in accessories....but i was unable to type anything,,,,, only the mouse cursor came on editor but nothing was typing...........


    But i continued to install the Ubuntu using Install icon on the desktop........

    i got 6 steps to go for that.....
    1..Language selection....
    2. Zone selection ..
    3.. and so on...

    After that one window came asking for.....computer name.....user and password...etc...

    Here came the big problem....i was unable to enter anything.....as keyboard was not detected....

    and installation was stuck....
    But i made a clever move.....and opened some .doc file that was there in the Live CD....and as mouse was working perfectly...i copied one word frm that file and pasted on all the fields..(user name ....password..etc...)....and i proceeded to next step of installation.....

    i thought that things will allright after complete installation....

    i booted the syatem and got ubuntu installed......i got one screen asking for USER NAME.....BUT AGAIN KEYBOARD WAS UNABLE TO FEED ANYTHING...SO NOW WOT I SHUD DO???????....


    ONE MORE THING WHEN I RUN THE LIVE CD......I FOUND IN THE DEVICE MANAGER THAT NO KEYBOARD DEVICE DRIVER WAS THERE........

    Re: Ubuntu Installation....

    sorry, i don't quite understand your last post

    If your keyboard works on liveCD why you just don't boot from there,
    mount you ubuntu partiticion,
    copy /etc/X11/xorg.conf to your mounted etc/X11 (you can backup your broken xorg.conf first),
    reboot and after that (should be working by then) make any changes you want or need?

    If you don't know how to do some of the above post that i (or others) can detail on that.
    There is an app on liveCD, called Disks i think, that mount partitions with a GUI (a graphical interface)

    good luck

    Re: Ubuntu Installation....

    Hi frozen,
    Ok I think a good solution to your problem would be to start an onscreen keyboard.

    This can be found at System --> Preferences -->Assistive Technology Preferences.

    You should then have the option to start an onscreen keyboard. After you start it, try reconfiguring X as recommended in my previous post. If the doesn't work give us another post.

    P.S. You might want to do this with the live CD if you can't log in.

    If it`s a usb keyboard you may need to go in to your bios settings and "enable legacy\usb keyboard" or something like that,
    I just had to do similar myself when swapping keyboards about .
