    Numpad acting as mouse

    Somehow, I have made my number pad move the mouse pointer around.

    I'm running gnome on slack 10.1, I have restarted X and rebooted the computer, it still does it. Any ideas on what could be causing it?
    Cheers

    Check the input section on your xorg.conf file,

    There is nothing unusual/wrong in there.
    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard1"
        Driver      "kbd"
        Option "AutoRepeat" "500 30"
        Option "XkbRules"   "xorg"
        Option "XkbModel"   "pc101"
        Option "XkbLayout"  "us"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse1"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option "Protocol"    "IMPS/2"
        Option "Device"      "/dev/mouse"
        Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    EndSection
    I did have a play with some of the accessibility stuff, I was using the on screen reader, because I was bored. I think that might have triggered it, but I figured a reboot should have fixed it. The only suspicious process I can see is
    Code:
    /usr/libexec/at-spi-registryd --oaf-activate-iid=OAFIID:Accessibility_Registry:1.0 --oaf-ior-fd=21
    If I kill this process it just restarts again.

    Thanks for the help

    Well I found the problem. Under the preference/accessibility menu, there is the configuration for accessibility. For some unknown reason to myself, I had turned this on. So with one checkbox, the problem is solved.
