    hi,

    here's my problem: I'm running IDLE in Ubuntu. For some reason numpad
    buttons do not work. I'm kinda used to this layout. Doesn anyone have
    an idea on how to switch it on?

    cheers,

    Alex

    Sure, look directly above the number pad and you will see a button
    labeled "NumLock". Press that button and you should be golden! ;-)

    thanks, but this doesn't solve the problem, because I need to use the
    numpad as a cursor, not to enter numbers.

    cheers,

    Alex
