    window manager?

    in gnome, you'd go to Desktop-->Preferences-->Accessibility-->Keyboard and turn on the "Mouse Keys" option

    KDE should have something similar but, as I don't use KDE, I couldn't tell you exactly how to find it. It should be under accessibility though

    I hopped into KDE just for this .

    For KDE, you go to Control Center, and open the "Peripherals" section. Select "Mouse", then click on the "Mouse Navigation" tab.

    From there, you can enable mouse-by-numpad.

    Yup.
