This post contains the kali linux keyboard freeze fix. Kali 2.0 is out, and I’ve installed it on my work pc; one thing I noticed was that the usb keyboard kept becoming un-responsive. It was very annoying.
- Keyboard stops responding randomly for a few seconds, making typing very difficult.
- various messages in /var/log/messages and dmesg about new usb devices (eg the keyboard over and over again)
- the mouse pointer still works, and the mouse still moves around, but you cant click anything and you cant type
- lots of typos as keys randomly stop working in the middle of typing!
