I am using a Gateway LT22 netbook (AMD Athlon II Neo Processor K125). The keyboard and trackpad (Synaptics) work in Windows 7 but do not work when I boot into Ubuntu 10.10. I must plug into the netbook an external USB keyboard and mouse. Are the two problems related?

P.S.
I think the next time it would be wise to not take a German install as main bug and mark the rest as duplicates, now we have 100 duplicates because everyone thinks her/his problem is different.

This bug was fixed in the package virtkey - 0.60.0-0ubuntu2

  * Prevent include-links from being set in the DH_PYCENTRAL variable
    before the build, this is not needed in this package and generates

Please stop sending any more workarounds; These are sure to confuse new
users, and the bug is now fixed in the latest upload, and updating the
system fixes the mess for me, and for Chris, and (I hope) others as
well.

I had the same problem.
I fixed it by combining post #5 and #8, because i got the error:
cp: not writing through dangling symlink `/usr/share/pyshared/python_virtkey-0.60.0.egg-info'

so:
root@mypad-laptop:/dev/input# sudo rm /usr/share/pyshared/python_virtkey-0.60.0.egg-info
root@mypad-laptop:/dev/input# sudo cp /usr/share/pyshared/python_debian-0.1.16ubuntu1.egg-info/PKG-INFO /usr/share/pyshared/python_virtkey-0.60.0.egg-info
root@mypad-laptop:/dev/input#
root@mypad-laptop:/dev/input# sudo apt-get -f install

that did the trick.
Thanks you!

I fixed this bug, and I am 14! So, you can help even when you are young, you just need to know the required language, and then nothing prevents you from contributing.
