By default, the numpad is not activated when you arrive to login window. To activate it, you need to install a package. Shown with Linux Mint Cinnamon.

  • Open a Terminal.
  • Type sudo apt install numlockx to install the package.
  • Once installed, just confirm in the Terminal with: sudo numlockx on
  • (Linux Mint) – Open the Login Window manager with: sudo lightdm-settings
  • In Settings tab, verify that Activate numlock is checked.

Now, numpad will always be on each time you start your computer.
