Question about Computers & Internet
Whenever I start my Ubuntu my keyboard too is not working to type in password to login. By fluke I ticked on the onscreen keyboard then my keyboard worked. Next time when I login again the keyboard doesn't work and I have to uncheck the onscreen keyboard this time and it works. So, alternatively I am doing this to login everytime.

Having worked for IBM for 20yrs I do know how to use a keyboard! I have tried many suggestions found on the web to no avail and I wonder why it seems to have been happening for so long. There are very few up to date solutions pertaining to Zorin 9 and or Ubuntu 14.10
I am running this on a dedicated test system with no other OS on it.
When I try to follow some of the suggestions, the supposed options are just not available. Zorin seems to have very few options for Keyboard and Mouse. Thank you.

Numeric sometimes doesn't work if "Num Lock" is not deployed. Push it!

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

Thank you for using FixYa
I know exactly what you mean because it annoyed me as well. I am using Mint Julia
My solution was to go into the Preferences then Passwords and remove the password and make it a blank instead of putting in any characters. Then in my Gnome Desktop, when it comes on, I click once on switch users and then another mouse click on my user name which is already highlighted, and I am in. That makes it just 2 mouse clicks instead of entering a password, not exactly the final solution, but tolerable. Maybe you could do likewise. Have you tried asking in a Linux Forum, they should have a better solution. http://zorin-os.webs.com/apps/forums/
I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.
