[Solved] Mousekeys

I would like to be able to toggle mousekeys on and off so that I can use the numpad to move the browsing caret as well as type numbers. I've been googling around and some say shift+numlock toggles this, others say ctrl+shift+numlock, yet others say alt+numlock. None work for me and there's no info in the accessibility options in the settings manager. I don't think I have an unusual keyboard; it's a pretty common Dell keyboard and it's not old.

Look in the mouse settings dialog.

The mouse settings dialog allows me to turn on mouse emulation, but I have to go back into this dialog and turn it off if I want to type numbers. There's no info about toggling the feature on and off with a shortcut.

Re: [Solved] Mousekeys

One has to enable mouse keys in ibus (right-click the system try icon, then Keyboard Preferences->Mouse Keys, check the first box on the tab. Look for ibus in the Application Menu if it isn't in the system tray. It doesn't seem to matter if mouse emulation is turned on in the Settings Manager.

Then go to the Accessibility tab and select the option that allows you to toggle accessibility features with keyboard shortcuts.

Finally, navigate to Layouts Tab->Options->Miscellaneous Accessibility Options and click Toggle PointerKeys with Shift + NumLock.
