[Bug 1529654] Re: Ubuntu 14.04 keyboard doesn't respond; okay in


David Ing, in order to avoid diagnosing the dependency issue when
attempting to use the enablement stack (just to see if the issue is
resolved in it), you may want to simply reinstall with a later version
of Ubuntu where this issue is confirmed to already be fixed. ISOs are
available at http://releases.ubuntu.com/ . This would also benefit you
when doing future in-place upgrades.

  Ubuntu 14.04 keyboard doesn't respond; okay in

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When I booted the computer this morning, the keyboard and mouse
  (actually a Lenovo keyboard with trackpoint) wouldn't respond.  I
  swapped keyboards, and got the same problem.

  This is happening under kernel  When I use grub to
  boot under the previous kernel, things are working fine.

  In the past few days, I had noticed that dpkg errors were holding up
  updates, so I did repairs and updates worked fine.

  I am typing this from the computer booted under, and
  obviously can not do so under


  $ lsb_release -rd
  Description:	Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS
  Release:	14.04

  What I expected to happen:  After boot, keyboard and mouse should

  What happened instead:  This computer has Mate Desktop installed on top of Ubuntu 14.04.  The Mate Desktop appears, but the keyboard and mouse (trackpoint) do not respond.
