The Numlock key in Puppy 1.x does not seem to be enabled by default.

The Numlock key in Puppy 2.10 seems to work properly, switching from numeric keys to the arrow keys.

If you are using the Xorg X server, you can enable the Numlock key by putting this line in the Section "InputDevice" section of xorg.conf (/etc/X11/xorg.conf)

Option "XkbLayout" "en_US"

This seems to enable the Numlock key, so that the numeric and arrow keys to work.

This also sets the PrintScrn / SysReq key to "Print" ... the default us layout sets the PrintScrn key to the Multi_key

The Multi_key is set to shift+Alt_R ... so to type an accented character, like or you would press ctrl+Alt_R, then press the 2 characters required to print the accented character, like o then ` or e then '

Pressing shift+Numlock should now enable/disable Mousekeys ... use the numeric keypad to move the mouse cursor

The default keyboard map seems to be "us" ... from xkb/symbols/us:
Quote:
// symbols definition for a very simple US/ASCII layout.
// It has basically the alphanumeric keys, punctuation,
// one shift key, one control key and caps lock.

If you are using a different keyboard from the standard us one, or if you are using the Xvesa server, this probably would not apply to you.
