Ubuntu – How to configure “mousekeys”


Under 11.04, the option to control the pointer with the numpad was set in the Hardware/Keyboard settings page.

How can I turn on mousekeys or configure them in newer releases?

In 11.10 and above you go to System Settings in the Power cog menu and select Universal Access.

Under the Pointing and clicking tab you will see a slider that lets you turn Mouse Keys on and off. The label says: Control the pointer using the keypad.
