Keyboard input is not working in 18.04. It always works till I unlock - type in password. After that it works only sporadically.

A stop icon is also displayed sometimes over the screen. Why does this happen? I think this could be a software problem because this never occurs while typing in password. How do I fix this? Screenshot attached.

I'm using a lenovo ideapad 320, ubuntu is the only OS in the laptop. This problem seems to go away when Florence is running.

Update: This affects the virtual keyboard as well. This problem only occurs in workspaces.

  • Please tell us your computer brand/model. Also, was another OS preinstalled, did the keyboard work at any time? Did you try another keyboard? – danzel Jun 7 '18 at 20:26
