Description of problem:
This happened suddenly, in the middle of a gnome session:
I don't get any input from the keyboard under a gnome session, I can't
even Ctrl+Alt+F1, although the rest of the system is fully responsive,
and I can log out with the mouse.
It's working all fine with a kde session or an xfce session.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login in a gnome session
2. no input from keyboard
3. all working fine with kde sessions or xfce sessions
Actual Results: no input from keyboard
Expected Results: keyboard normally working
it was working fine, but then suddenly fails every time. I logged out
several times, rebooted completely, and consistently fails only in
I hope someone has a hint of any locked-file that has been mistakingly
kept or such.
the session login is working fine, that's why I can log in a kde
session or xfce session without problems
I deleted my .gconfd/ and .gconf/ accounts, and I recovered the
keyboard functionality, but obviously I lost all my gnome configurations.
Do you have any idea what you were doing at the time to trigger the
problem? Have you seen the problem again since?
I was using openoffice writer.
I can append my the ".gnome/" ".gnome2/", ".gnome_private/",
".gnome2_private/", if that can be of any help.
Since I moved those directories, and ".gconf/" and ".gconfd/", all is
smoothly working, although I had to reconfigure most of the desktop
shortcuts and preferences I had before.
Okay, moving to openoffice on the off chance the guys have seen this
before - probably a keyboard grab leak
never seem or heard of this in OOo
hmm, sounds like
If you still (long time ago I know) have your original
perhaps attaching it to that issue would help to isolate the reason
