yeah it turns out that the package name was all in lower case oops
However my problem with xserver still hasn't disappeared
Error activating XKB configuration.
Probably internal X server problem.
X server version data:
The XFree86 Project, Inc
You are using XFree 4.3.0.
There are known problems with complex XKB configurations.
Try using simpler configuration or a newer version of the XFree software.
If you report this situation as a bug, please include:
- The result of xprop -root | grep XKB
- The result of gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb
if it's something to do with my keyboard I now have a startech 2 port KVM switch. But my keyboard and mouse work fine!
