I have lost my mouse functionality, and I have to work without it on my Ubuntu PC for a couple of days. I am OK with doing my stuffs without it on my computer. But I'm having no good time with web browsing at all. If I want to select a link I have to press tab several times, If I control mouse with Numpad then mouse moves really really slow (and it is useless). So, at the moment I do my stuffs on my PC and do web browsings with my laptop. Is there any way to solve this? I am using Ubuntu 12.10

You should be able to control the acceleration settings of the mouse in the "Mouse Keys" tab of the "Keyboard Preferences" (source):
Settings > Universal Access > Pointing and Clicking > Mouse Keys (disable)

An other handy option is using any game controller mapped with xboxdrv to your convenience.
After all I found an add-on for firefox named VimFx and one for chrome named Vimium. You can do a lot without mouse, easily. Here are its shortcuts, that if you are a vim user, then most of them you already know!
