Keyboard and mouse not working after 'startx' command from terminal on Raspberry Pi 3

Hello,

First of all, sorry if this has already been addressed but i haven't found the topic regarding my issue.

After connecting to my headless Pi, my mouse and keyboard aren't working after launching the graphical interface with the 'startx' command. Is it even possible to make them work this way?

Or am i supposed to install teamviewer on the gui, connect via ssh before, start the gui from the terminal then connect via teamviewer? This is not very convenient.

  • Hi Christian,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I didn't want to start Raspbian with autologin GUI to avoid using resources unnecessarily because i intended to run my RPi 99% of the time headless.The rest of the time would have been when it's moved and used with a screen for multimedia use.

    So accessing the GUI, started from the terminal, via TeamViewer, would have been a way of managing the graphical desktop environment remotely. But i've dropped this idea anyway, i'll just use a different sd card for multimedia use, and use a screen to manage it now that i have the appropriate cable. (I had none at the time.)

    However it's good to know that what i wanted to do is not possible. Thank you again for your answer.

    Regards.

  • What do all those abbreviations mean? I have this problem and as far as I know, all windows versions I am on are up to date, registered and I have the latest TeamViewer software.

    It was working fine until today or yesterday.  Perhaps a windows patch broke it?

    I am starting x using xtartx in a embedded device. (vnc server is working OK)

    but Teamviewer is waiting for something, and never goes online.

    can be the same issue?
