Help! - After recent updates keyboard not working!
Using Ubuntu amd-64
Ok here's the full story..
I modified the XkeysymDB file to include refrences for my keyboards multimedia keys. I also added a hidden .X something (forget the name) config file to my home directory.
This worked fine, multimeda keys worked great.
This morning I turn the comp on and download all available updates (X related libs)
Now I can log into my account fine but Gnome doesn't register any keypress', the screen blinks like the key is detected but doesn't print any characters.
Password prompts work fine but anything else, nothing atall.
My wifes user account works fine, I also tried deleting the config file I added to my home directory and rebooting, nothing. I checked the XkeysymDB file I had modifed previously and this had reverted back to normal.
Any idea? Can I roll back updates via synaptic/apt-get?
