I have Linux Mint 11 x64 installed on my laptop and i'm encountering a problem with my keypad.
Normally under Windows Numlock is enabled by default and under Linux it's all messed up.
For example; if i type text and i press 'Home' to go to the beginning of a sentence i get the number 7 instead,
and when i press 'Shift + Home' i go to the beginning of the sentence but without selecting it :S
After some googling i came across the following solution;
Installing Numlockx, adding the code below to /etc/gdm/Init/Default
Code: Select all
if [ -x /usr/bin/numlockx ]; then /usr/bin/numlockx on fi
which i find incredibly annoying
Has anyone found a solution to this problem or will i have to live with this?
