I believe it's in the keyboard settings. If it's not there, try looking in your BIOS settings or search Google.

I have Mint Maya.
Just push the numlock key, leave it there then reboot. It worked (minus the green light), now I have the light too.
Strange.

Are you sure it's not in the advanced keyboard settings? I'm not running Cinnamon or MATE right now, but it's the first thing you see in the KDE keyboard settings.
