Wireless keyboard not working with Ubuntu 18.04 Live USB

I created a Live USB with Ubunbtu 18.04 on it so I can look into dual booting on a Windows 10 PC.

When I boot Ubuntu from USB, I can't get my wireless keyboards to work. They both work on Windows, so there is no battery issue. They both use a wireless USB dongle. The wireless mouse with one of them works fine.

I used a wired keyboard to install xserver-xorg-input-all using sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-all, but the wireless keyboards still won't work

Is there anything else anyone can suggest that I try ?

Edit:

Output from lsusb is as follows -

The SanDisk device is the Live Usb and Lenovo is the keyboard/mouse. The keyboard/mouse are as supplied with the PC and are Lenovo. My alternative set with the same symptoms is by Microsoft.
