After upgrading 13.04 to 13.10 I have no keyboard. Fresh install of 13.04 and the keyboard is back, Fresh install of 13.10 and no keyboard. The laptop is an older LW40 1.8 Ghz 2Gb ram. A usb keyboard works fine but defeats having the laptops portability. Oddly Fedora 19 has the same impact on the keyboard. Any suggestions appreciated.

I don't know the details of your problem but I just solved a 13.10 upgrade related keyboard issue by looking at this post:

Keyboard not working 100% after Ubuntu 13.10 upgrade

In this case the keyboard worked fine before login and in excel under wine but not in anything else.

This question also had a solution for a keyboard problem but it probably different than yours:

Why did 13.10 break my custom keyboard layout?
