Just finished installing Suse 10.0 and the keyboard worked fine throughout install, but once it booted up it stopped working. To make matters more complicated, the keyboard works fine in grub and in the cosole. Its only in the login and in X that it doesnt work at all. On startup it detects the right keyboard and no issues happen when it starts up the driver.
Also, why i've got a thread up... i cannot play any mp3's or any divx videos. I cant install anything while i dont have a keyboard, but i'm curious as to why i dont have these plugins already installed as i installed every source package from the 5 CD's of Suse 10.0
I have a wireless keyboard and wireless trackball on my main PC
and a wireless trackball that I use with my notebook. All of
these work fine in Suse 10.
Obviously yours don't at present. You may have to buy a cheap
PS2 wired keyboard and mouse so that you can post here and we
can help to solve your problem. If you were installing windows
XP from scratch then you could run into the same problems.
Have you tried resetting the wireless receiver and the keyboard?
