I'm just trying my first trip into the world of Ubuntu.

Trying to install from CD on to a virgin machine, I get the initial language prompt, select 'English', I get the Ubuntu install options, select 'Install Ubuntu Server'. I'm then presented with a further 'Language for installation' screen. At this point my keyboard stops working!

Some specifics:

  • I'm using a Logitech wireless USB keyboard - it works fine on another machine;
  • Machine is a ProLiant Micorserver N54L (No PS/2 ports);
  • BIOS USB support is set to Legacy.

Any ideas?

This is a known bug with fixes released. I suggest a good read:

alternate iso missing hid-logitech-dj driver

Otherwise use a wired USB keyboard for the install, but you may have problems during GRUB selection if fixes aren't applied.

Thanks a bunch :-) Unfortunately I've no idea how to incorporate a patch in the build to be placed on the installation CD, I just downloaded 12.04 LTS, so think I'll have to buy a wired keyboard and hope that works. – Jon C Jun 28 '13 at 10:20
Broken in 14.04.3 LTS. – jjames Jan 2 at 9:31
