On my laptop keyboard in Windows, if numlock is off, 7=Home 1=End 9=PageUp 3=PageDown.

But in Ubuntu, it types strange characters. My end key (1) types out ~.

What can I do to fix this? Thanks!

If that doesn't work, try changing your keyboard layout in system settings.

  • fn + numlock is no use. :( – stryderjzw Sep 5 '14 at 0:34
