Sorry sir. Completely unable to reproduce. Were you able to find a workaround?

In RHEL 8.3 linux, Aspire E 15 (E5-521-25P9), AMD laptop. Octave 6.2.0 in /opt/octave-6.2.0:

Those eleven number pad keys work neither as digits nor as arrows and are completely blocked in Octave. NumLock works but its light goes on and off with no effect.  In other programs number pad keys work.

I have tried to look into ~/.octaverc, but it contains two paths that don't exist in my directory tree:

  1 addpath('/opt/zmat-master/octave/linux64/private');
  2 addpath('/opt/jssonlab-master');

petr@localhost:/opt/octave-6.2.0$ ls -lah /opt
drwxr-xr-x.  5 root root   73 Apr 19 22:10 .
dr-xr-xr-x. 18 root root  251 Jan 29 14:59 ..
drwxr-xr-x.  2 root root   34 Apr  5 14:40 franz-5.6.1.appimage
drwxr-xr-x.  8 1337 1337  100 Nov  9  2020 julia-1.5.3
drwxr-xr-x. 14 root root 4.0K Apr 19 22:11 octave-6.2.0

neither paths suggested by "man octave" exist.
