This question already has an answer here:

I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 and these key combinations do not work. If I toggle NumLock then Home and End without shift don't work properly. I found some proposed solutions for older versions of Ubuntu but they refer to menu settings that no longer seem to exist.

  • If Home and End are sharing your numeric keypad this is by design. If not, it's odd. – Elder Geek Jan 29 '15 at 16:12
