Testdisk hung up; keys don't work

#1 Post by lonestranger »

Hi all, I am attempting to use testdisk to recover a windows partition. I am running ubuntu 12.04 on the stricken laptop and am attempting to use testdisk 6.13. When I open this program (as administrator) the arrow keys don't work, the <enter> key doesn't work, nothing I do works. Focus is on the [ Create ] button and just stays there.

Does anyone know what might be going wrong?

Thanks for your kind attention.
