keyboard woes with an encrypted disk

During today's installfest we had a system with keyboard issues. The specific details were this: An ASUS laptop E200H, ubuntu 17.04 with gnome, and an encrypted hard drive. The system booted up to the screen where it requests the disk encryption password. At this point in time, the system did not allow the use of the laptop's keyboard. It did however recognize an external USB keyboard.

Grub Customizer

Back when I was distro hopping after I became dissatisfied with the operating system that I was using, it was not uncommon for me to have two, three, or even four operating systems on the same hard drive. An incident occurred at the recent Installfest on the 3rd of December that brought to mind a a small application that I had used to change the default operating system, Grub Customizer.

Install-Fest Location Change

The location for the 1 October 2016 and the 5 November 2016 Installation Festival/Linux Workshop has changed. Since the University of Advancing Technology is using all of the rooms on the 1st of October and the 5th of November, we will be moving the Install-fest to Gangplank, http://gangplankhq.com/chandler/, 260 S Arizona Avenue, Chandler, AZ 85225. There is free public parking just across the street next to Circle K. The time will remain the same 10-4. The Install-fest for 15 October 2016 will remain unchanged and will meet at UAT.

Cancelled September 2016 events

Once again we have to cancel events because many of our members will be out of town or have family plans for the Labor Day weekend. The Installation-Festival scheduled for 3 September and the regular AZLOCO weekly meeting scheduled for 4 September 2016 have been cancelled. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause. The Install-fests will once again resume their normal 1st and 3rd Saturday schedule on 17 September and the weekly Sunday meetings will begin again on 11 September.
