I am using a Toshiba laptop with only Fedora 21 in it. I installed Fedora a couple of days ago.

From the time of installation I was not able to use my external keyboard and mouse, I did the installation with the keyboard and touch pad available on my laptop.

But it is working with windows

I am using an external keyboard and mouse of zebronics connected to the laptop with a hub .

Can anyone help me to take my keyboard and mouse back in working condition.

Can you verify if the kernel detect your USB keyboard do:

sudo lsusb

and post the output here to see if it detects it.

Looks like the only USB devie there is PCPlay Barcode do you have a barcode device coneccted to your USB? if not then probably the kernel do not recognice your keyboard can you get a USB linux driver/module from your keyboard manufacture?
