[Solved] numlock on at boot

Postby DataMan on Sun Jan 15, 2012 7:17 am

It's been so long since I've had to dink around with setting numlock on at boot....

Environment:
Mint Debian 64 bit Gnome spin 201109
bios is set for numlock on at boot
Fully updated ops

Haven't been able to find the setting or control to have the numlock on at boot as the default. Guidance appreciated.

Thanks,

DataMan

Thanks for the link Vincent.

For Mint Debian, the path will have to be modified from gdm to gdm3.

The fix in the link fixes the numlock problem (for me :) ).

for KDE:

sudo kate /etc/kde4/kdm/Xsetup

then add

if [ -x /usr/bin/numlockx ]; then
/usr/bin/numlockx on
fi

to the file and save it.

Just wanted to add documentation to this topic.
