How to get numpad out of “mouse emulation” mode?

Spread the love

My numeric keypad has somehow got into a “mouse emulation” mode where the number keys just move the mouse pointer around (2 = down; 8 = up, 6 = right, etc). Anyone know how to make it work normally again?

None of the other numpad keys work either (I first noticed the whole thing when Ctrl + ÷ (numpad division sign) no longer produced “line comment” in IntelliJ IDEA). Toggling num lock doesn’t affect this (though the indicator LED works as usual).

I’m using GNOME on Lucid Lynx (10.4).
