Question Wireless mouse and wireless keyboard is not working in Linux distro's


Wireless mouse and wireless keyboard is not working in Linux distro's.

Read the similar threads on this issue. Boot mode is set for UEFI and Legacy therefore not sure what to do to enable mouse and keyboard? The mouse and keyboard use the same 'receiver' and the receiver indicator is green when Linux distro is fully loaded. Have tried various distro's, Ubuntu, and Ubuntu based distro's using LIVE DVD method on all. Latest distro tried is Peach 14.04.1 TW.40 64 bit. Motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3, CPU AMD FX6300 3.5 Ghz six core.

Thanks for any assistance.

What is the make and model numbers for your keyboard and mouse.
Not much info to go on except that we can infer it works in windows

Can you post the output of the lsusb command? Take a look at the output of the desk command. Are there any messages pertaining to keyboard or mouse? No need to post the entire output.

It might depend on which distribution you are currently running but would expect lsusb to be in the path for a regular user.

From a bit of searching it appears that the mouse and keyboard should work but getting the extra keys and buttons to function might be a bit of a challenge.

Downloaded Peach 32 bit version 14.04.1 TW.40. Mouse and keyboard works with the 32 bit version?
