I’ve tried with and without both mouse and keyboard. I’ve tried different mice, different keyboards, I’ve tried different power adapters. I’ve tried plugging in direct to the rpi and into a powered hub. I’ve removed the sd card and used a NOOBS card which I bought with the rpi and all the keyboards and mice work when it is installed. The keyboard works on the black screen with the piaware card fitted but when I do startx to go to the gui neither mouse not keyboard works. I cannot access any of the icons on the gui so I’m unable to get into the wifi setup. The wifi dongle has a steady blue led which should flash, so it’s not working either. However, piaware is connected to FlightAware and my stats are being recorded (using the fixed cable connection to my wifi).
This problem started AFTER I had done sudo apt-get update and loaded 1.20 so I suspect something in the 1.20 set up which needs to be altered.
I’ve tried imaging another copy of 1.20 but I cannot get that to work either. I’ve tried several sd cards and I’ve just sent for another one so that I can start completely afresh.
I’m rapidly getting to the point of ditching the whole project and finding something else so do with my rpi!
