Keyboard 10 key not working

<< < (2/3) > >>


I know this is basic but what is the status of the NumLock indicator light?
This could be inverted (i.e. light says ON but it's actually OFF), though this only happens to me when working on remote computers. ;)


The 10 key has always worked on every other Linux install. This is the first time it hasn't worked.

I'm sure I have the correct keyboard selected for this laptop and install.

Has your number pad ever worked or is it just after this new install ?
If not did you select the correct keyboard layout ?
try changing your keyboard layout:

Menu - settings - Keyboard
Click on the Layout tab and untick the Use system defaults box
Under the Keyboard model is a drop down box with various keyboard layouts, see if your keyboard model is there.
Close and test your number pad.
Might take a few trials before you find the correct one for your keyboard.

Hope this helps :)

So you mean a numeric key pad. Your post reads like there's an actual no. 10 on a key. If that's the case, does the keypad work with other operating systems? Try it with a live ISO of another OS. Cheers.

All modern keyboards have a 10 key on them, don't they? This quote was taken directly from Wikipedia.

--- Quote ---A numeric keypad, number pad, numpad, or ten key, is the palm-sized, 17-key section of a standard computer keyboard, usually on the far right. It provides calculator-style efficiency for entering numbers. The idea of a 10-key number pad cluster was originally introduced by Tadao Kashio, the developer of Casio electronic calculators.

And this is the image that Wikipedia has on that page. Modern keyboards have 17 keys instead of the actual 10 key that they originally had.
