Question

Numpad to enter numbers in nano?

I have a numpad, it prints numbers through ssh in terminal. BUT, soon as I jump into the nano editor, it does not print numbers, and can only be used for up, down, left, right, etc.

How can I get numbers in the nano editor.

Thanks!

Hello, try running with nano -K

The ‘clear’ key enables numbers within nano for anyone else in these particular set of circumstances.

Hey friend!

It should work fine with numlock on. I just tested in a few terminals.
