Description of problem:After upgrade to F9 xmodmap does not change all my keys anymore. I have problems redefining the keys of the application key-pad. I use the "modification file" as the one attached. On F8 systems this file used to work. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): xorg-x11-server-utils-7.3-3.fc9 on x64-86 How reproducible: Always after upgrade to F9 Steps to Reproduce: 1.Upgrade to F9 2.install xorg-x11-server-utils-7.3-3.fc9 3.create a .xmodmap file (see attached) 4.put xmodmap <xmodmap-file> in login-script 5.restart X11 and login Actual results: Keypad keys do not work as expected Expected results: Keypad keys shoud kiv KP_xx codes Additional info:

I think that xmodmap is more or less deprecated, and you should use xkb means. However, I am not sure, and if it is true, we should put something somewhere some information about it.

Seems to be a problem with the keypad and X86-64. I did a fresh-install on the machine and the problem is still there but ... on a similar configured machine with a i686 system it works as expected. On the x86-64 machine I can modify all keys except the keypad. Even with the "default" us-keyboard layout <shift-KP1> should give KP_1, but even this seems not to happen. So my guess : the problem is not xmodmap but the key processing elsewhere. I have no clue where to look or where to report this.

Found this on a Ubuntu-forum In breezy, if you press CTRL-SHIFT-NUMLOCK you turn the keypad into a keypress/mouse cursor mode. Try typing ctrl-shift-numlock to turn this mode off and then see if the keypad works or you now have control of the numlock LED. ctrl-shift-numlock dis the trick for me. I have no idea how the machine entered this state.
