My keyboard has stopped working on the login screen after a restart. Now, when the lightdm login screen shows up, when I press any key on the keyboard, the keyboard turns off its backlight and does not respond in any way. It works on grub and bios. My mouse works in all cases. Some hardware details:
- Desktop PC
- External wired USB keyboard. I have tried two keyboards and the exact same behavior
- Wireless logitech mouse
- No GPU, only integrated
- CPU: Ryzen 3600G
- 512gb Samsung NVMe storage
- 32 Gb of ram
- Installed kernel: 5.12 but I have tried 5.10 and 5.9 from grub, same results.
- i3wm (community build)
- No double boot etc.
- I had already restarted after a kernel update
I had installed some games over steam and went doing some chores. I came back, logged in (keyboard worked) then when I was watching some videos, only the background music would play. I have restarted pulseaudio, same behavior. Unplugged and replugged headset (I use a USB DAC), same behavior. I didn’t have many things running on my computer so I have decided to restart and I ended up in my current situation.
Only thing I can think of is that I have downloaded too much content, occupied too much storage and something went off. I should have still 60GB storage left though.
If I cannot find a solution, I’ll go to work tomorrow, bring my work computer, check stuff with a linux downloaded usb stick
Note: I am writing this from my phone with no other computer available at home other than a Raspberry Pi.
