    Keyboard not working after fresh install


    I'm upgrading from BT-linux to Kali and it seems nice and fast. But, after installation, the keyboard on my laptop stops working. Very annoying.
    I can use an external usb keyboard, but that is cumbersome and not really practical on a small laptop. The trackpad works, but not the keys.

    Any suggestions? Do you need more info on my system?

    uname -a gives;
    Linux kali 3.12-kali1-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 3.12.6-2kali1 (2014-01-06) i686 GNU/Linux

    head -n1 /etc/issue
    Kali GNU/Linux 1.0.6 \n \l

    Try checking the /var/log/messages | grep -i keyboard and /var/log/dmesg | grep -i keyboard

    Do you have a xorg.conf?
