[Solved]Keyboard and Touchpad stop working after GNOME login

Postby Chiefahol2 » 2018-06-01 13:30

As the title says. System is Debian 9 with GNOME.

At the login screen i can use my keyboard and touchpad/mouse fine, when i login they both stop working leaving my desktop unusable.

I once selected 'Login as Wayland Only' or something from the gear icon near the login and it fixed it! They both started working.

But since then i have enabled auto-login for my user and not the mouse/keyboard don't work again. I can't select from that nice little gear icon that made things work. :evil:

Any easy fix for this?

Reinstall fixed it, not the most elegant way but whatever.

Just out of curiosity is it OK to run Debian 9 with Wayland as default yet?
