enable the numpad / keypad again in Ubuntu

8 11 2011

If your Numpad does not work anymore in the current Ubuntu installation maybe you should check the barrier-free settings.

In the Ubuntu Unity Desktop you can go there by clicking the right top corner -> Systemsettings (if you don’t use the unity desktop you need to go to the Systemsettings by yourself).

Now click the barrier-free settings icon and switch to the „pointer and clicking“ tab.

They Keyboard Mouse is the main reason for the Keypad issues. If you switch if off, everthings fine again.
