Restore the Ctrl + Alt + Num Pad 4 and 6 window positioning commands?

I got used to using ctrl+alt+numpad to move windows around in Ubuntu 11.04. Since I updated to Ubuntu 12.04, however, numpad shortcuts 4, 6, and 0 don't work. Those are the most important ones!

Is there another set of shortcut keys for these operations, or is there a way to bring them back?

The answer I came up with, in case anyone else needs it.

I installed compiz-fusion-plugins-extra over ccsm, which gave me access to window management shortcut keys. From there, I was able to enable the maximize option.

Standard warning with ccsm: use it sparingly. It'll turn on you for, like, no reason.
