[Solved] Numeric keypad only moves mouse, num lock doesnt activate numbers

Postby chengiz » 2018/05/16 20:54:01

n/t. The num lock *key* works as in the corresponding light lights up, but numbers never get activated. The keys only seem to be moving the mouse in tiny increments, no matter whether num lock is on or off.

uname -r is 3.10.0-693.21.1.el7.x86_64.

Googling threw up https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php ... ost4948640 for Ubuntu, but I dont see this option for Centos.

I have tried different keyboards, including a Sun Type 6, but to no avail.

Found it.

Run dconf-editor. org/gnome/desktop/a11y/keyboard/mousekeys-enable. Set to false and save.
