Thread: Number Pad not working on fresh install of 13.1

  1. #1

    Default Number Pad not working on fresh install of 13.1

    Number keys don't work on the number pad, whether in NumLk on or NumLk off. Enter key works. Ins causes the cursor position to jump; freezes up applications and won't Esc out. Changing the System Keyboard Layout doesn't affect it. /etc/sysconfig Editor>Keyboard>keytable is set at "us.map.gz". >Yast_Keyboard is set at "english-us.pc104".

    Worked well on opensuse 12.3 and on Windows 7 (dual boot).

    I don't have a clue how to fix this. Any help appreciated.

    AT Translated Set 2 keyboard (/dev/input/event0).
    Lenovo AMD Athlon II x4, openSUSE 13.1, 64-bit

    Ok here is a start. Make sure your Numlock is off, and type "xev" in the console. Press these keys: Keypad 7, Numlock, Keypad 7. Post the output (only the output generated by these key presses, should be six items in total). For reference, here is what it outputs for me:

    Code:

    xev reports three events:

    state 0x0, keycode 36 (keysym 0xff0d, Return), same_screen YES,
    " XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (0d) "
    XFilterEvent returns: False
