Hey everyone. I’m experienced in Linux, but very new to BSD.
I’m trying to get a new install going. My keyboard works fine during the initial booting, when I’m given options like:
- Boot Multiuser
- Boot Single User
One I boot up into the X11 based installer though, my keyboard is completely unresponsive. My mouse works fine, so I can click through things until it asks me to enter a password. During the boot process, it does say that my keyboard (by name) is detected on usbus1.
Looking online, it looks like various people have had problems with keyboards not working with X11, with various settings to change. I could potentially boot on another computer for the initial setup and to edit some X11 config files.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
I did try switching to different USB ports. This happens with both the USB3 and USB2 ports.
Hi @opensourcepirate ,
Disconnect and reconnect the USB keyboard and, show me the DMESG(8) output.
I’ve pasted the output below. It seems that the issue is with this particular keyboard; I was able to install fine with a different keyboard connected. I had interesting behavior with both keyboards connected. I can type with the working keyboard, but they system acts as if Ctrl is being held. Regarding the dmesg output; yes the connect/disconnect order is the opposite of what you asked. I can’t type with that keyboard connected. Trying to type dmesg just closes the terminal (ctrl-d). Also the exact usbus/usbhub numbers change depending on what port I use.

I believe that my issue is the one discussed here - https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=233884
Now I’m trying to figure out how to apply that patch to ukbd.
Hi @opensourcepirate ,
Can you show me this outpput ?:
dmesg | grep atkbd
Thanks, see you.
