My habit is to use the numblock on my keyboard if I have to type in numbers. Is there a way to enable the numblock in Ubuntu 11.10?

Yes there is: just press NumLock button on your keypad –  zetah Nov 9 '11 at 21:09

Press NumLock button: fail. So I'll try the second. –  cberg Nov 9 '11 at 21:16

Try Alt+NumLock, Ctrl+NumLock, Fn+NumLock... one of these may enable NumLock again.
