It's for Ubuntu but it works. I using MATE so no problem.

Keylock:
The keylock indicator applet shows you whether your caps lock, num lock, or scroll lock keys are on. Use these commands to install it:

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tsbarnes/indicator-keylock
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indicator-keylock

Thx I have already installed indicator-keylock from:

http://ppa.launchpad.net/tsbarnes/indic ... r-keylock/

and it seems to work well.

For MATE 1.8.1 Linux Mint 17 (Qiana) Desktop:

Visit the http://www.zavedil.com/mate-lock-keys-applet/ page, and Download the mate-applet-lockkeys-0.2.3.tar.gz

Open MATE Terminal:
$ tar -xvf mate-applet-lockkeys-0.2.3.tar.gz
$ cd mate-applet-lockkeys-0.2.3
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr
$ make
$ sudo make install

After Log Out / Log In, Right-Click on panel and add the Keyboard LED Indicator.
