It should be in a tab marked "mouse keys", not "layout". Another possibility is that it's in some other configuration tool under "assistive technologies - keyboard accessibility".

Some people with this problem seem to have solved it by just pressing Control-Shift-NumLock. Don't ask how!

CVAlkan I tried your suggestion first as it seemed easiest. The terminal output I have is exactly the same as you posted.
