some kind of fruit company....

When the MacMini arrived, I forgot that I might need a keyboard as well. Not that often, as it'll be some kind of "server", but once in a while one might have to free the box from an ugly panic or just play around locally. Anyway, now a slim Apple keyboard is connected and suffering from a nasty bug in Ubuntu/Hardy. Fortunately, this is already documented in Launchpad and the almighty blogosphere.

In short: when accidently hitting the NUMLOCK key, my keyboard is basically unsuable. Hitting F6 twice does the trick for me. Plugging in a 2nd (non-Apple) keyboard and hitting NUMLOCK again seems to resolve it as well :-)

What's the subject line about?
