About a year ago faced a problem: at any random moment the GUI just stops responding to input devices. All applications continue to work, the messages in IM come pop-up Windows appear, interestingly, the cursor moves with the mouse, but nothing can be done. Sit there and watch.


A few months ago was solved by switching on a nearby Desk and back (Ctrl+Alt+right). Now even that does not help (though the problem began to meet much less frequently — once or twice a month). You have to open the console and restart gdm. In the same console restart hal and dbus — too anything.


Over the past year, I think, updated all that is possible: both xorgand gthumb (sometimes when it is closed and when working in the Gimp it happens), and the driver from nvidia, and several complete upgrades.


gnome: 2.30+1

xorg: 7.5+6

compiz: 0.8.4-4

nvidia-glx: 256.53


Like all. Faced?

It is in gnome?.. In some xfce and similar will not?

Try creating a new user and some time to work from it, with a clean profile. Perhaps the problem is in the settings.

XS or not described the symptoms I was seeing. It was off a mouse click, everything looked the same as you, but when you hover over the button (it is normally lit up, but not pity) and Antero — worked. The problem was the evdev driver.

On the beech exactly the same symptoms. But perhaps the roots are not there, because at the moment are poking a finger in the touchpad. With reason did not understand.

I have the same problem. Ubuntu 10.04. Already tired of the root.

Just now there were doubts. View you have in Options->Keyboard tab the "mouse Button" is checked "Allow to control pointer with keyboard"?
