Hardware internal laptop keyboard dead at login

Postby Berkah on Tue Feb 21, 2012 9:55 pm

well, i am feeling rather stupid... :
System: LMDE with Updatepack 3 on new ACER Laptop and 686-PAE Kernel
Everything worked fine until after some software additions, Updates etc. (still setting the system up for work).

Problem now:
(a) At BOOT, internal keyboard works at GRUB screen, but NO FUNCTION at Login-Screen.
(b) a fresh pluged-in a USB keyboard works for log-in!
(c) after login, the internal keyboard works fine :?
'dmesg | egrep keyb' says:
2.613410] inpit: AT Translated Set 2 keyboard as /devices7platform/i8042/serio0/input/input0

What is the problem, I really don't know what to do....

Additional information to my problem on the log-in screen:

On booting WITH my USB-keyboard plugged in, NONE of the keyborads works.

Unplugging and re-plugging-in the USB keyboard makes it work...

inpit: AT Translated Set 2 keyboard as /devices7platform/i8042/serio0/input/input0

That's kind of odd... it should read "input: AT..." not "inpit" but I don't think that a typo in the output has anything to do with it.

Can you please give us the output of this command:
Code: Select all
inxi -F

Code: Select all
dmesg | egrep inpit

and
Code: Select all
dmesg | egrep input

What if you run it live from a cd/dvd/usb-stick?

LMDE Live DVD works fine! That means, the keyboard works in all phases of the process.
(As it worked during the very first booting after installation... however, that was the first and last time :? )
