No keyboard on KDE, works fine on prompt
I got this weird problem. I used to run my apt updates with a script and I mis-understood some apt flags, so the thing was replacing my config files.
As a result, I lost my keyboard. After playing around a bit I noticed that the kb worked fine if I disabled auto-login and switched to the prompt. Now, my login routine involves going to the console login, do nothing and waiting a bit until the GUI login pops up again, then keyboard works fine.
I've tried to search for a solution to this but to no success.
I run Morphix/Debian/Unstable, Kernel is 2.4.21
I am having the same problem.
I have the same problem just after logging in. I don't understand how you got the keyboard back. I had to logout and log back in as another user.
