Mouse and keyboard not working

Postby alexoi » 16 Apr 2017, 13:33

Hi,

I'm trying out Porteus 3.2.2 on a USB stick.

Starting up works fine, entering the kde gui. But neither the keyboard nor the mousepad works :no:

Hardware: Asus E200H Notebook PC.

Any suggestions?

Regards,
Axel

According to this thread that might relate to a kernel issue:
https://askubuntu.com/questions/753964/installing-ubuntu-from-usb-on-asus-e200ha

You might try a more recent kernel, here's 4.10.8 (compiled by neko and provided by ncmprhnsbl)
000-kernel-4.10.8.xzm 45.8mb
vmlinuz 3.2mb

There is also brokenman's kernel update.

Installing on a 3.0 USB Stick

http://dl.porteus.org/x86_64/kernel/porteus-4.9.12/

vmlinux -> /boot/syslinux
000-kernel.xzm -> /porteus/base

Have you by any chance tried to update the kernel but not updated 000-kernel.xzm module with it?

This also happens when trying new Xorg with old DE's, like it was described here: 002-xorg module updated -> Xorg 1.19 + Mesa 17 + xf86plugins

Thanks for the suggestions. The newer kernel 4.10 had no effect though (the new xorg just didn't start). Will do some more searching... :Search:

Hi all,

Just wanted to let you know my findings on this.

I found:
https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?id=2196

Unfortunately it seems the hardware in the Asus Vivobooks is not supported by Linux :sorry:
