I have a Toshiba laptop , have full numbatic keypad on the right, can't use it anymore. 8,6,4,2 working like Mouse Arrow.

i tried to enable/disable it but still same .

how can I fix it ? thanks in advance


In 11.04, open your keyboard preferences and select the "Mouse Keys" tab. Make sure that "Pointer can be controlled using the keypad" is unselected.


That's close. On 11.11, for me, it was "Univeral Access" -> "Pointing and Clicking" -> "Mouse Keys". Disabling that, corrected the num-pad-being-used-as-a-mouse-arrow-movement issue.
