Numeric keypad just doesn't work under Ubuntu

Filed under: — brendan @ 11:52 IST

I’ve had the odd problem where the numeric keypad keys on my keyboard just don’t cause anything to happen. I run xev and I can see the keypress happening, but nothing appears where I’m typing.

A great blog entry by Peng Barthelmess has the workaround until Gnome does the real fix:

Go into the Keyboard Preferences (System >Preferences > Keyboard) and go to the Mouse Keys tab. Simply uncheck the box for Allow to control the pointer using the keyboard. (I know the grammar sucks on that sentence. I need to find a bug for that as well.) That will let users of Ubuntu Hardy, and other distros that use GNOME 2.22, to regain the use of their numeric keypad.

Worked like a charm!

Certain people simply cannot allow themselves to get medical insurance and thus forced to pay for the expensive prescription pills or trying to buy generic pills online. Generics produced in India are very good as other branded counterparts. Only reputable pharmacy produces them such as German Remedies. With this in top one is allowed to buy nolvadex uk in generic pharmacy online with extremely affrodable shipping to any point in the world
