Re: KDSETKEYCODE: No Such Device. Cannot Set scancode xx to keycode xxx.

i restored one package *** gnome-desktop-environment ***, and now it backs fine.

I meant to remove unnecessary packages to make my system clean, keeping only what I want.
I'm still wondering if there is a way to uncheck this package and also to get the problem resolved?

anyway, it could be a work around now having this package restored.

thanks to you guys.
Appreciated for your helps

It would help to know which packages you (un)installed right before the
problem started. Check out the /var/log/dpkg.log* files.

To rule out hardware problems, test your system with Knoppix or another
suitable live CD.

My guess is that you accidentally uninstalled one of the packages that
handles the keyboard setup. What output do you get for:

dpkg -l \*console\* \*kbd\* | awk '/^[^D|+]/{print $1,$2,$3}'
