USB mouse and keyboard not working after ubuntu 8.10 upgrade


Hardware: Dell Optiplex GX620, usb keyboard and mouse running through an OmniView usb kvm switch

My usb mouse and keyboard are not working after upgrading from 8.04 to 8.10. Ubuntu 'loading' bar during bootup looks weird now - it's cut off and split into two bars. I also have some error messages during bootup

Code:
usb device not accepting address 13, error -71
unable to enumerate usb device on port 5
...
unable to set system time to: ...
I've tried running dpkg-reconfigure to reset xorg.conf, no change. Any suggestions?

Have you tried bypassing the KVM, and seeing if it's detected then?

I am having the same problem.

The laptop upgraded but the tower does not want to know.
My keyboard and mouse are ps2 connected
I have 3 bars loading on my screen.
I cannot re install the operating system, however the keyboard does work on the boot and recovery options.
Any ideas? Help.

If I disconnect the keyboard/mouse from the hub and plug them directly in, they're still not detected, but the bootup errors disappear.

I just at the release notes and saw the X.Org Input Devices section

http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/810

running dpkg-reconfigure console-setup did not fix the problem, though.

Any suggestions?

I just discovered something - the ubuntu upgrade documents advise you to apply 8.04 upgrades before performing an 8.10 upgrade. I didn't do this. Is there any way to fix without reinstalling?

I did the 8.04 upgrade first so i do not think this is the issue.

Put in a proper xorg.conf file for your system in /etc/X11/

and DO ADD

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "AutoAddDevices" "off"
EndSection


If you have a 8.04 file with modelines, that will be fine

I tried this, I get the same errors when I reboot. I tried plugging my usb mouse and keyboard directly into the computer, they still don't work. I'm copying my current xorg.conf below.

Should I reinstall? Seems a waste if this is just an xorg problem.

Code:
# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

Posting this at the end of my /etc/X11/xorg.conf fixed this issue for me:

Quote:
Section "ServerFlags"
Option "AutoAddDevices" "false"
EndSection
It disables hotplugging for your mouse and keyboard, but it oh well. As long as it works.
