    Default Keyboard doesn't work in GUI

    Hey, I'm new to backtrack and linux in general and have just installed BT4 to dual boot with windows 7 pro. My PS/2 keyboard worked fine after the initial installation and while using live CD's before that. I was reading forums on how to insert drivers for wireless cards and may have botched a driver installation. Immediately after, my keyboard stopped being recognized in the gui (don't know what its called, KDE I think?) The weird thing is my keyboard will work properly in the start-up command line, allowing me to type in my user name, password, and startx to start the gui. However once in the gui keyboard becomes unresponsive with one exception. I can hold ctrl and click left mouse button to select multiple items. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide me.

    Might want to either try searching google for info on keyboards and ubuntu or re-do your setup.
