Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I'm having a problem with a Deltaco TB-229 USB keyboard when booting to Peppermint OS Three. As that is based on Ubuntu, I ask the question here, hope that is fine.

The keyboard has worked flawlessly in Windows 7 (it's a dualboot machine). When I boot into Linux, the keyboard does not react (can't login as I can't type the password). However, if I switch it to another USB port, it immediately works and there are no problems for the duration of that session. Next time I reboot, though...same thing.

Bus 002 Device 003: ID 05d5:0624 Super Gate Technology Co., Ltd 

I think the Deltaco is the last in this list generated with lsusb.

Should I add something to a script run at startup, before the login screen? I am a newbie...

Thanks in advance, J.

Welcome to AskUbuntu. Yes peppermint is Ubuntu-based , but different distributions might have different settings and configuration files. So this question can be called Off Topic. Try to enable the USB-Legacy support through BIOS configuration page. –  NikTh Nov 10 '12 at 11:33
