How do i get Numberlock 'on' at startup?
« on: May 08, 2008, 06:06:58 am »
believe me, i can see that there has been a LOT of threads about this, BUT there arent any for vl5.9 xfce. i looked in the repos and numlockx is absent. is there another way, besides hitting the numlock key, to activate numlock at startup?

Used the search box "number lock"

Then found this:

I have packaged it a few days ago and uploaded it.
It's not in testing yet, though.

It's now in the testing repo (thanks, exeterdad).
