I just landed and editor position on a tech website. My job is to edit articles about Linux. I started out as a writer on this site, and I do know a bit about Linux, but my command terminal skills are well.... bad. The other night, I was trying to test command code in and article I was editing and I had issues.
I copied/pasted the command into my terminal window. System asked for password.. no problem. But when I tried to type my password, I found my keyboard was unresponsive.
I've tried several time, and continue to have the same problem. I'm using Ubuntu Hardy Heron on a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop. It's a brand new laptop, we bought it on Friday. Installed Ubuntu Friday night. Technically, it's a dual boot.. VistaUbuntu but the Vista partition has only enough space to keep it from complaining.
I've had no other keyboard problems.
