Re: Num Lock
Ugh. I have more or less the same problem, but with the function keys.
I am on a ms-office keyboard at the moment. Don't ask me why, but if I go pick out a keyboard, I pick the one that types best, and it was ms at that moment.
However, it has the ms office shortcuts as primary options on the F-keys, and I have to turn on 'F-lock' to switch the F keys to their proper functions.
This, after a month of non-stop ubuntu, got very annoying.
There probably is no solution, so I should be on the lookout for a new keyboard...
If this is life, I think I'll live another day
