My mouse is not working properly, So I enabled keyboard keys for Moving mouse arrow using

Universal Access > Pointing and Clicking > Mouse keys "On"

But Mouse Arrow moves very Slow using keyboard Keys. I want to move it in normal way as I move mouse, using keyboard keys(Numlock keys 2,4,6,8). How to solve this ?

Confirmed on an Ubuntu 12.10. Same problem: the cursor moves extremely slow when using the keyboard keys. Unfortunately, Fly's post didn't show any improvements. –  somethis Aug 19 '13 at 8:11

It's more than likely the delay that you have set for they keyboard repeating keys.

  1. Go to "System Settings"
  2. Click on "Keyboard"
  3. Lower the "Delay" slider under "Repeat Keys"
  4. Raise the "Speed" slider under "Repeat Keys"

Comment back if this doesn't solve the problem.
