laptop keyboard works only in english

Post by kazuper » Sun Jun 17, 2018 6:11 am

Hello and thank you beforehand for your help

I have tried installing linux mint xfce 18.3, as well as 19 beta and i face the following problem
when i try to switch languages (from english to greek) my laptops keyboard and touchpad stop responding. No keystroke on a text editor and cant move the mouse pointer. i cant even switch back to english with shift+alt as it doesnt recognize any input.
I connected a usb mouse and switched the language from the taskbar flag icon to english and everything worked again.

from the languages option it seems greek are fully installed
what seems to be the problem? in windows there was no problem with the keyboard and the touchpad....

my laptop is a cherry trail atom x8350 with 4 gb rab and 32gb onboard drive
