incognito doesn't recognize keyboard


Please bear with me as I am new to Linux and Incognito. I installed on a USB so I could stick in my pocket and take to work and not have to worry about my bosses being in my business. Let me just say I am doing nothing wrong in my work surfing but I am the type who likes to keep my private things just that.

I tried out my stick at home first and everything worked just fine, it was just what I needed and I'm loving it. However when I brought it to work it boots up but the keyboard won't work (isn't recognized and loaded.) I used the mouse to continue through the bootup thinking maybe it would be fine once I was in but it wasn't, it's like the keyboard isn't recognized at all. It's just a standard keyboard like I have at home so I can't figure what would make the difference.

Any help? Thanks

Hello and Welcome to LQ,

First of all it's very important to state what distro you installed so that LQ users can help you out even faster. The keyboard is that a USB, USB Wireless, PS2? Please post make/model of keyboard.

Kind regards,

Eric

Weird. I use the very same model and it works perfectly with Incognito.

Is the keyboard working in the language selection menu in the beginning of the boot process?

Nope, been a bit since I tried it, I think i used the mouse to get past that. I'll have to try it again so I can get some specifics.
