I recently ran an “innocent” flash player. But after that, I can not use the keyboard and the mouse. This happens when linux was running, then I turn off and turn on my computer, and they (keyboard and mouse) don’t work in the login screen.
The only way I have to ask from some help and using mouse and keyboard is enetering in failsafe mode.
But for now, I can not enter in normal linux 11.1 because keyboard, and mouse died.
Also I tried to repair system from the installation disk, but mouse and keyboard, don’t work neither
Even if flash messed up your X config, the bootloader should recognize the basic functions of your keyboard. If your keyboard isn’t working even at boot I’d suspect a hardware problem, with the flash thing being coincidental.
In that case you may want to check /etc/X11/xorg.conf against one of the many backups the system does for you. Maybe replacing the mouse/keyboard sections from one of the backups will solve your problem.
This likely means they work in run level 3 (ie keyboard likely works with a text login) and you could thus boot to run level 3, run (with root permissions) “yast” and configure your mouse and keyboard under yast, which will automatically modify your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file for you.
… or did you not understand how to boot to run level 3 ? To reach run level 3, all you need do, upon the grub boot menu, is press the key “3” , where 3 will be added on in the options line to the end of the current boot options. Then boot. It will take you to a text/ascii login where you can log in as a regular user, and then type ‘su’ to switch to root permissions, and then run ‘yast’ and then navigate the menu’s to configure both your keyboard and mouse.
Another thought, some PCs which have USB mouse and USB keyboard need to set their BIOS setting for USB devices to ‘legacy mode’ in order for those devices to work well under Linux.
