vim numerical keypad doesn't work

In vim whenever I try to edit some files the numerical key pad doesn't work. I have got numlock ON. But still it doesn't work whenever I try to press (* or 1, 2, 3 etc.) from the numerical keypad.




set wm=3
set showmode
syntax enable
"set ai
set tabstop=6

does the keypad work at other times?

Try using the number pad in Konsole

If it has the same problems, I would suspect the keyboard layout!

Also, I have found that if you have either a paperclip or a staple in the keyboard it doesn't always recognise key presses.

There doesn't seem to be any problem with your .vimrc file

from my limited experiance with vi/vim the 10key (number pad to the right side of most 104 keyboards) does not work you have to use the standard number keys across the top of the alpha keys.

that is just what i have experianced when useing vi/vim.
