"I have standard ps2 keyboard and ps2-to-usb adapter. Numeric keys section stopped to work after updating to hardy. Num Lock on or off doesn't help. The numeric keys above letters work ok.
I just noticed that my numeric keys work as a mouse, I can move the cursor with keyboard..
I haven't selected assisteve technologies in gnome-at-properties. Why it was set to on by default??"
Mouse keys is off by default. It can be activated using the standard X shortcut Alt + LShift + NumLock which is possibly what happened here, and there's no way for us to diable that. Doesn't sound like a bug at all.
there is a bug somewhere, I noticed the same issue on several installations after upgrading from gnome-control-center 2.20 to 2.21 this cycle, those were working before restarting the session and not after the upgrade
After upgrading g-c-c? If it's just that mousekeys is suddenly enabled after the upgrade, I don't see where g-c-c comes into it. g-c-c isn't even running in a normal session. g-s-d maybe, but g-c-c?
you can reassigning to g-s-d, not sure which one has the issue
the description might not have been clear but the bug was there after updating from 2.20 g-c-c to the new g-c-c and g-s-d splitted versions so it might be due one or the other
reassigning to g-s-d
Sounds like it could be related to http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15150
