Keyboard doesnt work in X (Suse 10)


I've recently installed Open Suse 10 on my machine... after the install though my keyboard stopped working in X. It worked throughout setup, and even still works in the console and in Grub... and also windows (I have a dual boot system). Here's my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file keyboard parts:

Section "InputDevice"
Driver "kbd"
Identifer "Keyboard[0]"
Option "protocol" "Standard"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
EndSection


Section "InputDevice"
Driver "rfbkeyb"
Identifier "Keyboard[2]"
Option "InputFashion" "VNC"
EndSection


I'm pretty desperate, i have no idea why it isnt working. Its a logitech wireless keyboard, which is hooked to my computer through the ps/2 port.

Thanks!

really?! What kind of wireless is it? bluetooth? Why use PS/2 if USB works better?

I am facing the same problem

I am facing the same problem with logitech cordless keyboard which was previously working in fedora 2, suddenly stopped working.

Did you find the solution for your problem? Did you used any hardware detection tool in Suse? I have kudzu util in Fedora but it is also hanging for me.

All the best.
