I just installed Ubuntu 12 on my dell laptop with windows, I had to mess around a bit to get the wifi going and now my keyboard is not working.
When I press the keys nothing appears but the keys feel fine. I have checked and number lock is off. this is the top set of number keys and not a number pad.
It starts at the number 1 key, then goes across. 5 key and 6 key work but the rest of the numbers up to - do not. I have read some other posts and tried some things but I have not been able to resolve.
I am guessing this is something with the computer and not the actual keyboard itself since it has never had this problem before.
How to fix this issue ?
Edit: the keyboard layout may be the culprit, does anyone know what layouts are used for dell laptops without num pad?
