Ubuntu: keyboard and touch pad not working hp pavilion g6 ubuntu 16.04



Question:

So back two days ago I was trying to install KDE on my Ubuntu 16.04 and it didn't go well (might not be the cause) and when I restarted my the keyboard and touchpad just doesn't work.

I tried installing Windows 10 thinking it'd fix the problem, but it didn't help. I tried everything. I completely cleaned the motherboard and checked everything their and its all fine. And sometimes when I start the system the brightness keys work for some seconds.

Please help guys. Thanks in advance!

/etc/X11/xorg.conf   


Solution:1

Im having the same problem on my girlfriends Pavilion G6, only the F keys work since the update. Keys dont work in the bios for me either. A usb keyboard plugged in is fine.

Have faffed about in keyboard config file and tried a few set ups but no joy
