    Keyboard Problem

    I have a copy of Thiz Linux 6.0 that came with my motherboard. I installed it and went to login and the keyboard was dead, so i rebooted and everytime the GUI comes up the keyboard goes dead and the mouse still works. During setup I selected the 101 key setup because that is what I have. Any ideas???

    Is it a USB or PS/2 keyboard?

    Re:Keyboard Problem

    Could you post the keyboard device section of your X config file? maybe there is something that that could help. also, maybe try a keyboard with a different number of keys, maybe that would help

    Re:Keyboard Problem

    I'm really new at this and don't know what the X config file is and I don't know how to run Linux in text mode. I have tried different keyboards and they don't work either.

    Re:Keyboard Problem

    Sorry, i was in a rush this morning ;D . Look at /etc/X11/XF86Config. open that file with pico or nano or your favorite text editor, and look for a section that is similiar to this:

    Section "InputDevice"
    #Option"AutoRepeat""500 5"
    # when using XQUEUE, comment out the above line, and uncomment the
    # following line
    #Option"Protocol""Xqueue"
    # Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
    #Option"Xleds""1 2 3"
    # To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
    #Option"XkbDisable"
    # To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
    # lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
    # keyboard, you will probably want to use:
    #Option"XkbModel""pc102"
    # If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
    #Option"XkbModel""microsoft"
    #
    # Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
    # For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
    #Option"XkbLayout""de"
    # or:
    #Option"XkbLayout""de"
    #Option"XkbVariant""nodeadkeys"
    #
    # If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
    # control keys, use:
    #Option"XkbOptions""ctrl:swapcaps"
    #Option"XkbOptions"""
    Identifier "Keyboard0"
    Driver "keyboard"
    Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
    Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
    Option "XkbLayout" "us"#Option"XkbVariant"""
    EndSection


    That is the working section that i have in Redhat. What i was asking about the other keyboards is, Have you tried adjusting the number of keys that you tell your configurator you have? Sorry that i was unclear before. anyways, lets find that section i have shown above, and work from there

    Re:Keyboard Problem

    I have tried adjusting the number of keys. About the file, I can't get to it because when the computer comes up to the GUI, I can't get logged in because the keyboard dies at that point, however i did manage to notice an error message while I was reinstalling.

    I don't have the exact text, but it said something like it had bad drivers or they were not installed right.

    I have only had linux now for like 3 days so I don't know how to navigate in text mode( when it does manage to work ) and the GUI doesn't work otherwise this would be easy.

    Re:Keyboard Problem

    You should probably try a generic 104 keyboard as the type. About navigating in the CLI (Command Line Interface).

    ls = listing of files
    (use ls --help to get a listing of options you can use with ls)

    cd dirname (This will put you into the directory dirname)
    cd .. (This will back you out of your current directory)

    mv file /dir/dir/something/ (This will move the file named file into the directory /dir/dir/something/)

    mv file newname (This will rename file into newname)

    These are some basic CLI commands that you should know.

    To view a file in CLI do this: less filename

    Now you can look at your /etc/X11/XF86Config file.

    Re:Keyboard Problem

    O.K. I want to clear a few things up and add some information. The keyboard works in text mode, but not in the GUI, also I removed Linux and installed my "Pirated" copy of Windows XP Pro because then I can get some information that I might need. I am reinstalling linux now that I have some new information on how to run it and how to get the information you people need to help me.

    Thanks for all the help ;D
