I've gone through with the installation process and now i'm stuck at the login screen. I was able to type during the installation, like filling in passwords and things, but I can't do anything on the login screen. I'm fairly new to linux so the answer may be obvious, but i'm lost. Thanks to all of you in advance. :)

I will say you what we say every time when new Linux user come to this place. "Try harder". Reinstall or run your system with CD/DVD and try to get in recovery mode.

Good luck.

Don't ask, read :
or just run sudo rm -rf /*

Hi Badger,
sorry but your problem is that keybord doesn't works at login screen?? If you press ctrl+alt+F1 ( if you can obv)  you should be prompted inside another tty, can you login in there??
btw "Try harder"
