[Bug 1014240] Re: [Asus eeepc 1225B] Keyboard and Touchpad randomly not working at startup



I installed the Bento Openbox respin (Ubuntu with Openbox) version
14.04.3 on Asus EEE PC of the same version, 1225b, and seeking for all
the best solutions for this little laptop to work correctly, stumbled
upon this bug report. Hence I rebooted and removed the external keyboard
and mouse I had plugged to work conveniently and met with the same
keyboard/touchpad issue as you guys.

I applied the solution promoted by enrico on his comment #16, and all
seems fine now. I hope it will continue to work right! (And I have no
idea where the options added come from and what they refer to, if you
people know what they refer to, I'd attempt to understand how that

Thanks and best regards,

  [Asus eeepc 1225B] Keyboard and Touchpad randomly not working  at

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Usually, once every 5-6 times when I reboot or awake form hibernate, the touchpad and keyboard do not work: no way to input text and login so I need to hard reset the laptop. I can ssh in (so the system is not frozen) and  Fn+keys to change screen brightness etc always work.
  I collected X and kernel logs when it happens (by logging in remotely via  SSH) but I'm not able to understand what is going on.

  This issue is reported in multiple forums, and affects Asus 252b as
  well (same laptop model for US market). Another bug is filed for this
  laptop model, related to hibernate/suspend
  (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/951143) and a
  workaround exists, maybe it helps.
