Logitech Cordless Elite keyboard doesn't type in Gnome
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:50 EST
Description of problem:
I have a Logitech Cordless Mx Duo set with a Logitech Cordless Elite
Keyboard it comes with. I can type on the login screen of X, in the
bash prompt without X loaded, in X screensaver, and in KDE... But in
Gnome, when I try to use any application such as gedit within Gnome, I
cannot type. All I get is the cursor flashes whenever I attempt to type.
I have this all attached to a Belkin SOHO-4port USB PS/2 KVM switch,
too, if it helps, but I don't really think it's relevant. I haven't
tried doing it without the switch yet or using the USB connectors on
the switch (I will, so remind me to say what happened if I forget).
I'm using the PS/2 connectors on the keyboard.
Maybe Gnome is a better place for this (I am not really sure).
I can also type when I log into Gnome as root.
