Keyboard doesnt work in X
 
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!

Not sure why you appear to have two keyboard input devices, unless the second is something to do with accessing your computer from another.

However, please advise what you have further down in your xorg.conf in the 'Section "ServerLayout" area' ... mine reads:

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout[all]"
InputDevice "Keyboard[0]" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Mouse[1]" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Mouse[5]" "SendCoreEvents"
Option "Clone" "off"
Option "Xinerama" "of"
Screen "Screen[0]"
EndSection

I think you must make sure that your "CoreKeyboard" is Keyboard[0] and not Keyboard[2]

You will have to restart your Xserver after making any changes to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Hope this helps
