I have both an inspiron 1721 and a vostro 1700. Both have the numeric key pad on the keyboard.
I wish to use the windows-style shift-home and shift-end shortcuts (select text to beginning of line and select to end of line from the current cursor position), but they don't seem to work in the test area, nor in gedit.
I went into Preferences > Keyboard and enabled the windows number pad behavior, but it still doesn't work. I even rebooted.
What do I have to do to get it to work?
