Latest of Sid comes up with keyboard and mouse disabled. In other words, no logons either!
Unplugging and replugging the USB mouse reactivated the mouse. So I borrowed a USB keyboard from a friend and plugged that in and I am in an using it right now.
Xorg log has strange new message to the effect:
hotplugging enabled .... devices mouse, keyboard, vkeyboard are disabled.
So how do I get rid of this mess?
