Also, post the outputs of Thank you for taking a look and helping with my problem. I had to create the archive because the text files were to big to upload.
I hope I did this correctly! Firstly, can you post the entire Xorg. Anyway, here you go:. Org X Window System server configuration file. This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using. Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg. Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously.
If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated. The outputs of those files seem to be satisfactory, can you post the output of I modified the xorg. Unfortunately, when I reboot and the Gnome login screen comes up, the mouse pointer is still frozen and the keyboard will not enter letters in the Username field. So it looks like adding these lines to xorg. BTW, earlier I noted the error output from command "sudo dpkg-reconfigurre xserver-xorg".
Does this give any clue and do you have further suggestions for diagnosing my problem? Waiting for further steps. Ok, open the file for editing with JFYI, I also tried to run "sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg" and got the following output:. The following packages were automatically installed and are section serverflags option allowemptyinput off end section c1b longer required:. Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them. In any case, I have no idea what to try next and await further instructions and ideas.
Can you repost the output of Try booting Ubuntu in Recovery Mode and then select xfix, then see if your input devices are detected properly. I did what you suggested but it did not affect the problem. I noted there was error output when I ran xfix but I was not able to capture it. When I ran X -configure STEP 2I got the following error message:. Server is already active for display 0. END QUOTE Oh, then kill X with Oh, then kill X with Just got back from a 2-day trip. So, I did run the command to kill X and received the following message:.
Stopping Gnome Display Manager. Xorg: no process killed. Then I tried to follow the earlier procedure. When I ran the X -configure command, I got the following error output:. List of video drivers:. Since it looked unsuccessful in creating the new X conf file, I stopped and am waiting to hear what you suggest for me to do next. At someone else's suggestion, I edited the xorg. When I rebooted the computer and got back to the GDM login screen, my keyboard worked well enough I was able to complete the log in and go on to the desktop.
However, my mouse is still frozen on the destop, so I cannot navigate at all. Does this offer any further clue about how to get X to recognize my input devices? Hoping for some further instructions. Make a section called "ServerLayout" at the top of the xorg. Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0. Remove the line to load the evdev module and add the following lines to allow the kbd and mouse drivers to control your input devices again. However, I cannot be sure that your input devices use the same settings as mine, so you may need to tweak them a little.
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7". EndSection Make a section called "ServerLayout" at the top of the xorg. I tried to follow your instructions, but X had a problem with my monitor and I could not get to the login screen. Right now my xorg. Undefined Screen "Screen0" referenced by ServerLayout "X. EE Problem parsing the config file.
EE Error parsing the config file. WW xf86CloseConsole: KDSETMODE failed: Bad file descriptor. In the "ServerLayout" section, remove the Screen part, then see if X starts. I did that and got the warning screen that said something like: Ubuntu is running in low graphics mode, and that screen settings, graphics card and input devices could section serverflags option allowemptyinput off end section c1b be detected correctly and that I will need to configure them myself.
There was a menu there, and I chose to return to the default settings. This did allow X to start, sort of, but when I logged on and got to the desktop, the mouse was frozen like before. Thank you for your patience in working through this issue. It is discouraging since in 6. I am posting the new xorg. When I rebooted the system again, it got me right back to the GDM login screen, but the keyboard could not input the name and password, and the mouse was frozen, as it has been.
Attached is the new xorg log file. Can you please post your xorg. From the log, it seems that we are back at square 1. Whoops, you did, sorry. Well, this time, shutdown X with If you face an error again, do not reconfigure it to defaults, just post the Xorg. I shut down X as recommended, then added the ServerLayout section back into xorg. When I rebooted, I did not make it to the log in screen. Undefined InputDevice "Mouse0" referenced by ServerLayout "X. What is our next step? Please add these sections as well EndSection Please add these sections as well Did what you suggested.
Did not make it to the log in this time, either. Attached are the new xorg. It now seems to be crashing, try this, uncomment the sections for the mouse so that they look like this EndSection It now seems to be crashing, try this, uncomment the sections for the mouse so that they look like this Did as you recommended. X did not start. Here are the new files.
Can you do the same to the keyboard sections and try again please? This looks very strange. One last time, can you uncomment the mouse sections and then post the log file please? Did that and here are the new files. Well, I'm stumped, there are a few errors however they don't seem to be reliable in the way that we could find out exactly what is wrong. As a last ditch effort, can you startup an Ubuntu live CD and see if the mouse and keyboard work properly on that?
If they do, post the xorg. The mouse on this computer is a Logitech Cordless Optical mouse, and it connects to the computer through a USB port. When I tried the live CD 8. Same result when I tried the 6. However, when I attached a regular mouse to the mouse port, the 8. Maybe there is a hardware problem with the USB cordless mouse? Although it would be a coincidence that the mouse broke right when I upgraded section serverflags option allowemptyinput off end section c1b 8.
Section serverflags option allowemptyinput off end section c1b am going to leave the regular mouse attached for now. When I boot the Ubuntu installed software X is still not starting. What would you recommend I do tomorrow to try and get it working with this regular mouse? Thanks for your perseverance. Well, it could be a hardware error due to those errors, but you may need to look into that yourself. About the X-Server, just restore it to the original configuration, the one before we started experimenting, if evdev works properly, then it should detect the new mouse properly.
First, to try to see if the installed 8. Result: X did not start. I have attached the log file. Then I used the live 8. Here are the xorg. Do they tell you what I need to do to get 8. One more thing: I removed the Logitech cordless USB mouse from the Ubuntu computer and put it on a Windows XP notebook. Still did not work. I called Logitech and they helped me determine it is a hardware issue with this mouse. So that could have been the original problem with X, maybe, or at least one of the problems.
Hoping to hear from you what else I might be able to try now, to get X working on the 8. Refer to previous post. Going a little further, since the 8. I made it to the GDM login screen, but once again without a functioning mouse and keyboard. Here are those files. I am stumped, too, and don't know what to try next. Is there a way I can install version 8. Hmm, it seems to me that HAL isn't working now from the EE line.
Can you first stop the X-Server, remove the sections for the mouse and keyboard, and restart HAL with And about using 8. I did not quite follow your instructions. I stopped the X-Server. I changes the xorg. I only got to the login screen, again without working kbd or mouse. Here is what xorg. The new log is attached following reboot.
I see there is still a hal error. After posting this log, I did the stopping of X and hal restart routine, but the computer booted the same way, back to the GDM login screen with no kbd or mouse. Can you please post the output of END QUOTE Well, everything is correct, but it seems that there is a problem with HAL.
Can you just check this, open Synaptic and look for the xserver-xorg-input-mouse and see if it is installed. Well, everything is correct, but it seems that there is a problem with HAL. I will be happy to do this. Since I cannot log into GDM, can you tell me what to do from the command line? Just to bring this thread to an end, I finally just saved my data and did a full new install of 8. Thank you for your patience in working through the issue, even though we were not quite able to resolve it.
The main thing is that 8. I have the same problem on 8. I really don't want to have to reinstall 8. Thanks for the tip. I'm currently running Jaunty and I'm having the problem where my keyboard and mouse stops working after Ubuntu loads. Adding this item in the Module section helped.
