View Full Version : [ubuntu] rdesktop always in NumLock-off mode

November 19th, 2008, 02:07 AM
I can connect to my Windows XP computer at work, but the keyboard always behaves as if the NumLock key is off. Having to use the numeric keypad for cursor, home, end, delete, etc. is really awkward.

Is this a bug? Or is there some setting at either the Ubuntu (8.04) or Windows end that I need to change? I couldn't find any settings in Windows for the Remote Desktop server. And the Terminal Server Client settings in Ubuntu don't contain anything that is obviously relevant to this issue.

If I was stuck in NumLock-on mode, I wouldn't mind.

Is this posted in the wrong area? I can't believe no one else has had this problem.
