I installed Ubuntu 8.10 on my laptop today, and the onboard keyboard's numpad isn't working like it should.
Pushing the keys doesn't seem to do anything.
The only key that seems to work is the Enter key.
Keys that don't work:

1 | End
2 | Down Arrow
3 | Page Down
4 | Left Arrow
5
6 | Right Arrow
7 | Home
8 | Up Arrow
9 | Page Up
0 | Insert
. | Delete
Numlock
/
*
-

The + key seems to think it's a mouse click sometimes, however.
Left or right click. It doesn't seem picky.

I'm pretty sure this is a keyboard layout issue, but I'm not sure what to pick.
Any ideas?

Seems the multimedia keys don't work either.
I've tried using the keytouch getscancodes program, but none of the keys are registering.
Not the numpad keys, nor the multimedia keys.
I can't figure out what's wrong.
Someone help? Please?

I just had the same problem on my desktop ubuntu install.

Might not be the same issue but just in case....

Go to Preferences >>> Keyboard

Click on the "mouse keys" tab

Make sure the tick box is unticked.
