I’m having an issue where my laptop is not responding to keyboard input (from neither my inbuilt nor external keyboard) when I get to the passphrase prompt screen to unlock my LUKS encrypted home drive (it still works in GRUB). This started happening yesterday after running an update and rebooting. I have tried solutions from various threads, specifically, putting keyboard, keymap and consolefont before autoload in my mkinitcpio hooks, and adding atkbd to modules, then rebuilding initramfs, aswell as downgrading systemd (all from a manjaro-chroot on a manjaro architect live usb). None of these solutions have worked.
Could it be the case that it has something to do with me having a brand new keyboard plugged in at the time of the update? It was the first time i’ve run a -Syu with an external keyboard plugged in on this laptop - or is that just a coincidence?
I’m running kernel 4.19 LTS on a Dell G5.
If worse comes to worse, what are the chances of simply being able to do a fresh install while keeping the contents of my encrypted home intact? fortunately they are on separate drives
Thanks in advance!
