    How to Control the Mouse with the Keyboard?

    I hereby request that you kindly assist me in using the PC Keyboard as a Mouse. In a Linux Operating System Fedora 30, 28 LXDE and Gnome 32 and 64 Bits.

    Which application, program or procedure of keyboard commands must be installed or performed to Use the Keyboard as a Mouse.

    I thank you in advance for your kind attentions, help and prompt answers.

    If you bring up the Help guide, select Universal Access, then look under "Mobility Impairments" you will find instructions for using the keyboard as a mouse.

    On my tests it failed to work when using a virtual machine, and the mouse movements are very slow.

    User error. Please replace user and try again

    Just for reference, if you are running "X/Xorg" (not default, but you can switch it on login screen) a simple command like

    Code:
    setxkbmap -option keypad:pointerkeys
    will get you there. Enter it in an Xterm application, or a terminal. Then you use your numeric keypad to control the mouse, and it is very intuitive.
    It beeps at different frequencies to indicate "mode" when you press numlock. If you got a condensed keyboard, use Fn lock first activate quasi keypad on your keyboard, or use "alt gr/right alt"
