I have a chromebook that is running 14.04 and I was trying to get the trackpad to work so I tried the following:
mkdir ~/backup sudo mv /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/* ~/backup/ cd /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ sudo wget http://craigerrington.com/chrome/x_al... sudo unzip x_alarm_chrubuntu.zip sudo rm x_alarm_chrubuntu.zip
then I checked my keyboard layout
sudo gedit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-keyboard.conf
which was how it's supposed to be so I closed without saving, rebooted and now neither my keyboard or mouse work.
It boots to the log in screen and wont let me type my password or move mouse, same issue with external mouses/ keyboards. I can't even get into a virtual terminal.
This is my only computer and right now I'm using a live CD of kali, both the mouse and keyboard work fine in kali.
Is there a way to fix the issue in Ubuntu while I'm using kali?
