Bug Description

This happened when upgrading to 15.04 with the kernel version 3.19.0

The keyboard works in grub, but when I'm asked for the password to decrypt the disk it does not work. It happened before but it was fixed (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/initramfs-tools/+bug/1238194)

Version of plymouth: 0.9.0-0ubuntu9

Other USB wired keyboards work with no problem

@mcat95 have you come across any kind of workaround for this issue other than using a wired or builtin (laptop) keyboard?

I am experiencing this same issue, same scenario (15.04 upgrade) with a Logitech K800 wireless keyboard. Happy to provide detailed system information if it is useful, but my config appears to be very similar to mcat95's.
