I recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 and my Compro K100 worked fine in the beginning. But somewhere along the way it has stopped working. Who can help me diagnose the problem?

To start off here is some info.

What else can I run to get insight as to why this device stopped working?

What stopped working? When you power on the device, nothing at all happens? –  Tom Brossman Dec 15 '12 at 14:54

I have the same problem. Using the same remote K100 videomate.

Not sure if this will help you, but I've read up and it seems that the problems started after a certain kernel upgrade... You can always try rolling back to a previous kernel and see if that works, but I would not recommend it.

In the end, I ended up using my Genius Gamepad together with JJK (Java Joypad to Keyboard mapper) to act as a remote. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=12405868

However, not sure if this is a solution/workaround that you can use.

Thank you, I will have to attempt to either roll back or upgrade the kernel. I will post the results. –  Rudi Strydom Dec 29 '12 at 10:54
