Hello! Does it work if you enable Numlock? This can be done automatically by installing the package numlockx.

He is actually talking about the numeric keypad of a virtual keyboard: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_keyboard

Hm... I did some testing with Onboard (not in the login screen, I don't know how to get the on-screen keyboard to pop up there), and I found that I was able to type numbers with the numpad, but only if before that I pressed the Num Lock key each time, or alternatively pressed the num lock key twice in a row. Otherwise, it treated them like their corresponding non-number equivalents (e.g. left arrow for 4 and right arrow for 6). Could that be the problem?

I have numlockx package already installed and password is not recognized.

I do not know if it is your case but I once had the accessibility
settings configure the numeric pad as mouse replacement. All I had to do
is disable that feature. i think it is in the mouse or keyboard settings
or somewhere regarding accessibility. Not sure if this applies to
on-screen keyboard though.
