Does it come back if you unplug the keyboard/mouse and then plug them back in?

No, it doesn't come back if I unplug and re-plug it.

Which image(s) are you using?

Can you ssh in to the pi (ssh kali@kali) and then run sudo apt update && sudo apt install xserver-xorg-input-libinput && sudo reboot - does that fix the issue for you?

I was using the 32-bit image. I followed the steps above and that fixed the problem.

I downloaded the 64-bit image and that did not have the problem.

It looks like it's just the 32-bit image I used that has the issue. I haven't tried the other 2 rpi images. (rpi0w or rpi)

Si, I've already committed the fix to the git repo; When I reverted a pretty big change that was supposed to happen for 2020.2, I missed that it added back libinput being removed in the script (it was installed at a later point with the changes) - sorry for the inconvenience, I'll try to get a new 32bit image pushed out next week.

Change is pushed to git, just need to publish new images.
