One User has lost use of Keyboard on his home directory, If you hold a key down for about 5sec the character for that key will appear. Went into the KDE /Control Center/Peripherals and settings for keyboard was the same as for another normal working box.
Where is the keyboard controlled (file) from a users home directory ?
Holding down 'shift key' for 10 secs doesn't make any difference either.

The other three users on this same box has use of keyboard on their home directory.
To help understand your question, when you say "home directory", do you
mean "account"? It's not the same thing, and if you don't mean "account"
your question doesn't seem to make sense.


One of four users on same box can't use keyboard in their /home/user directory.
Still doesn't make sense. What you're saying is that the user changes to
his home directory (i.e. does "cd ~") and suddenly can't use his


The User tells me that there was a power failure and when he rebooted the box then he login using keyboard, then when he got into his Desktop keyboard wouldn't respond, and still won't.
OK, that makes more sense. You did mean "account", not "home directory".

Ask the user to log in using the other desktop, i.e. if he normally uses
KDE, tell him to try Gnome for one session and see if it makes a
difference. A power failure could do anything, but since it hasn't
affected other users I'm guessing the keyboard hardware is OK. It's
possible an X-related file got smashed and it's affecting him. Something
similar just happened to me, though not with the keyboard, but I'll
start another thread about that.


This box only has KDE on it.
He will have  to start a new Desktop , under a different user name.
