After new installation of Ubuntu 13.10 64 bit, I face there is problem in my keypad. I face my keypad is not working. then I realize that it functioning but it behave like a mouse pointer. I can see there is no effect of number led on / off. I can see number led change its states but not my number key pad.

  • Does the mouse move, when you press one of the numbers 14789632? Please edit and add the information. – MadMike Oct 22 '13 at 14:42

Is the mouse moving when you press one of the numbers 14789632 ?

If so, check this setting: System Settings >> Universal Access >> Pointing and Clicking tab >> Mouse Keys.

If it says On, click it to change it to Off.

  • This worked for my Ubuntu 14.04. Somehow some application changed the setting and all of a sudden the numpad was no longer working. – Alexandre Santos Apr 20 '15 at 20:23
