I am really frustrated right now. My LDME installation is just about 1 month old and I invested really lots of time to make it look and work just the way I like it..
Yesterday evening, about 12 hours ago, my Notebook while running just stopped taking input from both keyboard and mouse. I was already quite tired, it was late and I just turned it off by hardware shutdown and went to sleep.
When I turned it on again today in the morning, the keyboard worked fine in grub and until I am still in the console, but as soon as X starts and I get the login prompt, there is no keyboad or mouse.
I learned that I can use strg+print+r to get back the keyboard and switch to a another tty --> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_SysRq_key
I found out that when I run /etc/init.d/gdm3 stop and afterwards X, I get only a blank screen, but when I again with the key combo from above get back to the tty from where I started X I get the error that the module "nv" cannot be loaded. So I thought since grub still shows one older kernel I try this, but the result stays the same.
I found the suggestion to move away the xorg.conf file from /etc/X11/xorg.conf to have a new one generated, but it doesn't exist on my system.
Another suggestion I found was to put this block in the xorg.conf file:
Code: Select all
Section "ServerFlags" Option "AutoAddDevices" "false " EndSection
Some other guy posted that he resolved such an issue by installing the package xserver-xorg-input-evdev --> but my aptitude reports its already installed..
Thats about how far I got. no solution though.. I really don't want to start over again with setting up my system. please help me!
EDIT: Okey, so this nice guy <bofh80> from the IRC channel #linuxmint-debian told me how to get the properitary nvidia drivers running:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx nvidia-xconfig sudo nvidia-xconfig
