    Question keyboard is not reacting

    hello,
    with opensuse 12.3 at 1st screen i can't use the keyboard, thus no way to go to the "detailed boot options" .
    How come ? Thanks

    i also tried to burn a dvd and there same stuff, i can't change the language with F2, nor do anything else than boot on hard disk.

    i have the logitech illuminated keyboard :
    Code:
     
    $ lsusb
    
    Bus 004 Device 002: ID 046d:c318 Logitech, Inc. Illuminated Keyboard
    
    Bus 004 Device 003: ID 046d:c069 Logitech, Inc. M500 Laser Mouse

    that keyboard light draws power...maybe a little too much for its own
    good..

    if it is USB:

    -try plugging it into a different physical port on the machine..

    -if going through an external hub or switch, plug the board directly
    into the machine..

    -or add external power to the hub

    if not USB, try a different keyboard..

    it's usb and plugged at the back of the pc, i plugged it at the front and it's not helping .
    Don't you find that amazing that a keyboard is not working at the 1st screen and works a tiny bit after ?
    (after this 1st screen code comes, and then a grey screen, there i can strike Escape)

    did you md5 or sha1 check the downloaded iso prior to burning the
    install media (as discussed here:
    http://en.opensuse.org/SDBownload_help#Checksums)

    and did you then on first boot let the media self-check for errors by
    selecting "Check Installation Media" (like seen here for CD
    http://tinyurl.com/b856ekd, or here for DVD
    http://tinyurl.com/3qde66h) ??

    hi,
    i checked the md5 with k3b, it was ok, burning too but checking media was ko it could not read sector so i stop the control process. K3b is often doing me so : burning ok but controlling is ko but the dvd is always ok nonetheless.
    I did not used the dvd auto_check itself, for keyboard is not available (...)

    another keyboard works ok

    but my logitech illuminated is brand new and the other i had is broken ...
    so i'm trying to get this logitech keyboard work :
    kernel module is loaded (logitech module after mkinitrd)
    bios is enabled for usb 2 and usb legacy, it says that if i have usb problem i can disable usb legacy, i tried but it does not help.
    i'm writing with this keyboard right now, it's just wrong at the beginning of the boot process , but can't enter bios with it, nor use the options in opensuse 12.3 boot screen or in os 12.3 dvd boot screen (language, installation ...)

    hmmmm..it seems the new logitech one is also 'broken' until you (or
    someone) figures out where/how to get a working driver...

    that is far beyond my capability--i can't really directly help
    anymore--the following may or may not be useful to you:

    if i were in the situation you are in i'd probably use a different
    (working) keyboard and put that non-working-new keyboard on the
    shelf--and hope someday the driver makers make one that works with
    your choice of operating systems..

    or sell it for as much as you can get WHILE it still smells new and
    you have the box, all contents etc etc etc!

    alternatively you might find a fix in a forum containing a few linux
    users but LOTs of logitech illuminated keyboard users (instead of
    where you are now, with all linux users and almost no logitech
    illuminated keyboard users)....

    in fact, i'd think the maker and seller of the keyboard would be
    interested in making their keyboard work in as many different
    settings as possible....so, if you could find a logitech support
    forum you might find a hacker who thinks s/he might have the driver
    you need....heck, maybe all you have to do is go to the logitech site
    and pick up the driver already *waiting* for you . . . [i wonder if
    your new keyboard came with a CD, and if on that CD there is a linux
    driver?? or, in the owner manual, user info sheet if there is info on
    a linux driver?]

    after years of purchasing the latest and greatest off the shelf in
    the nearby "computer store" i have gotten to where i make a deal with
    the seller that i can bring back the new goodie if it doesn't work
    with my machine--and i do some pre-purchase discovery of what my
    fellow linux users have experienced....like, here:

    https://www.google.dk/search?q=linux+"Logitech+Illuminated+Keyboard"

    HEY, maybe there is a solution in there, somewhere!

    I note

    I can’t boot into BIOS setup with my Illuminated Keyboard - Logitech FAQ

    says set legacy USB in BIOS on some systems

    says this may not work with some BIOS

    GOOD!

    i have mostly gotten out of the habit of digging so deeply for a
    questioner unwilling to do the same..
