#Making your numeric keypad work on a Xubuntu 20.04 VM (VirtualBox)
I fought with this for a good 2 hours before I finally got it working. First step is to install
numlockx, if it's not already installed:
sudo apt update sudo apt install numlockx
Enable your Num Lock in your VM:
Now in Xubuntu, go to your Whisker Menu (or whatever launcher/menu you're using) and navigate to
Settings -> Accessibility -> Mouse and disable
Use mouse emulation.
If you're on vanilla Ubuntu (GNOME), or a DE other than XFCE, you may be looking for a menu called
Universal Access, wherein you'll want to disable a feature called
Control the pointer using the keypad.
You may need to log out and back in to confirm this works.
