USB Keyboard Stopped Working

Eyal Erez
Hi,

I use a Kinesis Advantage USB keyboard with my Lenovo X230 laptop. It worked fine until yesterday when I updated my system.  I have tested the keyboard with another laptop -- it works fine.  I also tested another regular USB keyboard with this laptop -- and that works fine as well.  It seems that the keyboard works immediately after I plug it in and continues to work as long as I continue to hit keys.  However, if I stop clicking for more then 5 secs, it stops working permanently. 

I don't think that this is necessarily an xmonad issue since it happens in the login screen as well (I use Slim).  However, when I log in with xfce, it does not happen for some reason. 

I'm at my wits end and I'm not sure what to do.

When I plug the keyboard in, I see the following in the logs:

I would guess that xfce is running some initialization specific to your keyboard somewhere. (Not at all uncommon for desktop environments to run a bunch of extra stuff you don't even know about.)

By any chance does http://superuser.com/questions/691990/different-keycodes-for-f3-and-f4-on-external-keyboard-vs-laptop-keyboard (switching from windows multimedia to generic PC mode) help?

Re: USB Keyboard Stopped Working

Eyal Erez
This ended up being a problem with the latest version of udev.
Not sure if it was manifesting this way.
