keyboard freezes when mdm starts on Linux Mint 14 Nadia

Postby Zorba on Sat Dec 01, 2012 4:52 pm

I have installed Linux Mint 14 64bit (Cinnamon and Mate ad dual-boot on a Dell Inspiron N5040). Occasionally the keyboard and touchpad freeze at the login screen and I can't enter my username and password, but the mouse is still working and so I have to reboot to get mdm working and login. This is my .xsession-errors :

Do you have all the updates? MDM was recently updated and I'm not sure if that is the problem. My other guess would be having both Cinnamon and Mate installed. I am not too familiar with Mate, sorry.

I just installed 64bit Nadia. And I can confirm no wireless keyboard on mdm screen, I'll try to dig up a solution OP, and watch this thread. Hopefully a solution can be found
