[SOLVED] Keyboard and mouse not working after upgrade

Hi... Last night I upgraded, using a Syu, my Arch. It updated KDE and some other things that I can't remember right now.

After a reboot, Arch didn't show the Simple Login as usual, so I tried either sudo kdm and startx, but the keyboard and the mouse doesn't work after X starts!

I'm a newbie at Linux, so tell me what information do you need from my PC and my Arch and I will post it. smile

Thank you so much!

Gon.

PD: Sorry, my english is very poor... sad

EDIT:

Solution: Activate dbus and hal in the daemons list in /etc/rc.conf.

Thanks to everybody!

Re: [SOLVED] Keyboard and mouse not working after upgrade

Two days ago I had similar problem but only with keyboard. You can have a look at the post  titled "Keyboard stopped working after upgrading to xorg-server 1.6.3-2". Maybe it will be helpful to you.

No, I tried to do what you said in your last post, but gdm doesn't even appear in the daemon list. I use slm, and after the upgrade doesn't start automatically, so I run kdm from the command line and I have the same results.

I'm from Ubuntu now and I miss my Arch. sad

Re: [SOLVED] Keyboard and mouse not working after upgrade

My brother had a similar problem. It was caused by something in his xorg.conf (we haven't found out what it was yet).

Are you using a xorg.conf? If so, rename it with

mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup

Then try to start X. That'll start X without a xorg.conf, therefore with all the default settings. Does your mouse/keyboard work then?

Re: [SOLVED] Keyboard and mouse not working after upgrade

I am getting a very similar issue.

When starting X I cannot move my mouse or use my keyboard, although my mouse reacts to button presses. (Brings up a menu in Awesome window manager)

DAEMONS:

DAEMONS=(syslog-ng netword dnsmasq hal netfs cond)

Relevant parts of Xorg.conf:

Section "ServerLayout"
           ...
           InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
           InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
           Identifier "Keyboard0"
           Driver     "evdev"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
           Identifier "Mouse0"
           Driver     "evdev"
           Option     "Protocol" "auto"
           Option     "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
           Option     "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
EndSection

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep mouse:

(==) intel(0): Silken mouse enabled
(II) config/hal: Adding input device Macintosh mouse button emulation
(**) Macintosh mouse button emulation: always reports core events
(**) Macintosh mouse button emulation: Device: "/dev/input/event0"
(II) Macintosh mouse button emulation: Found 3 mouse buttons
(II) Macintosh mouse button emulation: Found x and y relative axes
(II) Macintosh mouse button emulation: Configuring as mouse
(**) Macintosh mouse button emulation: YAxisMapping: buttons 4 and 5
(**) Macintosh mouse button emulation: EmulateWheelButton 4, EmulateWheelInertia: 10, EmulateWheelTimeout: 200
(II) XINPUT:Adding extended input device "Macintosh mouse button emulation" (type: MOUSE)
(**) Macintosh mouse button emulation: (accel) keeping acceleration scheme 1
(**) Macintosh mouse button emulation: (accel) filter chain progression: 2.00
(**) Macintosh mouse button emulation: (accel) filter stage 0: 20.00 ms
(**) Macintosh mouse button emulation: (accel) set acceleration profile 0
(II) AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint: Found 3 mouse buttons
(II) PS/2 Mouse: Found 3 mouse buttons
(II) PS/2 Mouse: Configuring as mouse
(II) Macintosh mouse button emulation: Close

Using `cat /dev/input/mice` the mouse seems to be getting movement information but I havn't yet figured out how to get X to accept this information, any help would be great smile

EDIT: Solved by installing xf86-input-synaptics and rebooting after reading this thread.

           Identifier "Keyboard0"

EndSection

Did you try with other keyboard driver? I'm using

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "Keyboard0"
   Driver         "keyboard"
    Option         "CoreKeyboard"
    Option         "XkbRules" "xorg"
    Option         "XkbModel" "pc105"
    Option         "XkbLayout" "us"
    Option         "XkbVariant" ""
EndSection

Re: [SOLVED] Keyboard and mouse not working after upgrade

I'm using "kbd" driver and have the same problems. In a lot of cases the keyboard initially works and fails after some minutes. Restart X solves the problem.
This looks very much like a bad bug and should be solved by an update. So far nobody here found the cause of the keboard failures.

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "Keyboard0"
        Option          "XkbLayout"             "us,de"
        Option          "XkbOptions"    "grp:menu_toggle,grp_led:caps"
        Option          "XkbRules"              "xorg"
    Driver         "kbd"
EndSection

No... Same results, but with a 800x600 screen. sad

Re: [SOLVED] Keyboard and mouse not working after upgrade

Re-installed arch x86-64 with ftp install, installed xorg and Kde, last evening.

No mouse or keyboard at log-in.

Suspect xorg config.

Re: [SOLVED] Keyboard and mouse not working after upgrade

Runing dbus and hal in the daemons solved the problem. I'm from Arch right now.

Thanks to Aaron and all you. smile
