The machine is a laptop, and there is no external keyboard in use. I will have a look at that report. My wife is the only user on that machine so she does have root rights.Have you updated X11 recently? Are the mouse and keyboard usb? If they are, try unplugging them and putting them into a different socket and force the system to find them afresh. If they do start working, then take a look at these two links: it may be that you need to install xserver-xorg-legacy. There's a Debian bug report here: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=868068 and a discussion thread here https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=1512 If you aren't using a display manager to grant root rights to X11, you may need: [code] #echo "needs_root_rights=yes" >> /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config [/code] to get it working from the console with '$startx'.

I have my own spare laptop in use, with an SSD, so I am considering adding my wife as a second user. That way she can use my machine while I am sorting all this out.
