Any help  much appreciated

Thanks Mark. It seems to have fixed it ( sort of ) but numbers only work when the num lock led is NOT lit!

Thanks for all

Thanks for the advice unfortunately didnt work, but at least the num lock led come on now.  I have an acer laptop. I have tried various combinations on the keyboard set up menu but none seem to enable the numeric keys. But did notice that the keys 4, 8, 6, & 2 act like arrow keys with the mouse pointer!  i havent ( as far as I can tell) got any sticky keys, etc enabled which would do this??  At least I know the keys are working somehow!
I really want to get them working again as I use them a lot with numbers. Any other advice eagerly accepted bearing in mind I am a ubunto novice  :)

General Help & Advice / Getting the number key pad to work

On my laptop I cannot get my numbers key pad to work. I have read all the info on keyboard configuration and tried various 'keyboards types' but cannot get the num lock key to stay alight and hence key pad to work.
Am I missing the obvious or does anyone know what I might be doing wrong? Any help appreciated.

Linux Tips & Tricks / a question of anti virus support
« on: December 18, 2010, 02:14:30 pm »
I have just started with ubuntu and am a complete novice having been with windows since....
what antivirus do you need with linux? I have a Norton account on another PC (with windows) can I use this with Linux or do I need to have a different one?

Thanks for what is probably a stupid question.
