On login screen all keys register as enter

On the login screen I can enter my username as normal, but after that any key I press registers as the enter key.  During the previous session I had uninstalled plymouth, but I'm not sure if that would have caused the issue.

Any suggestions?

Re: On login screen all keys register as enter

Tell us what "the login screen" means.   Many of us log in through the console -- which is the default.  I gather you are using some sort of display manager.

I'm logging in through the terminal as well. It's just a blank screen with "login:" and then "password:"

Re: On login screen all keys register as enter

What do you mean any key registers as enter?  What exactly do you see?  Upon the very first keypress in the password field, does it return "Login Incorrect", or does something else happen?

Yeah after I get to the password field any keypress will give me a "login incorrect" message and pop up the "login:" field again. After that I'm not able to enter my username again, any key will move to password.

No, but I doubt any of those could cause this problem anyway.
