I recently upgraded to 12.10 from 12.04, I have a wireless Microsoft Keyboard and Mouse (both ise the same dongle) my mouse works but the keyboard doesn't (it types random things) but my wired keyboard works just fine, is there a fix for this?

Sample: the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog (wired keyboard) 1zJVIXmdlaYDPujbcDIZ1zWNEFod2 (I typed the same thing, but here's what shows up)

You could check Keyboard->Layout Settings in System Settings. Maybe it got switched off of English? Are you using the keyboard with a laptop? – StuartHa Nov 4 '12 at 4:21
