I upgraded my VMware Fusion image to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS over the weekend, and everything went well except for the keyboard. It wouldn’t work.
So here’s how I found out how to fix it:
- Go to the Accessibility Preferences at the bottom of the screen, and tick on screen keyboard.
- You have to reboot because for some unknown reason, it doesn’t start unless you do.
- You can now type in your password on screen. Once logged in, your keyboard works
- Go to terminal, and reconfigure your console:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup
- Reboot, and you’re done.
