I had the same problem after upgrading from X11-6.8 to x11-6.9 because there are some changes in the keyboard configuration options for the newer version. So can you post the keyboard section of your xorg.conf to be able to help?

Regards

Hi there,

Here's my keyboard bit of the xorg.conf

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Driver "keyboard"
Option "CoreKeyboard"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
Option "XkbLayout" "gb"
Option "XkbVariant" "gb"
EndSection

I really want this sorted out, so cheers for helping me.

Driver "keyboard"
Change the keyboardd driver to kbd, above to see if it helps:
Code:
Driver "kbd"

Doing a little search I found this thread and also another one mentioning that you can run "dpkg-reconfigure console-data" to reconfigure your keyboard.
