How do i get Numberlock 'on' at startup?
« on: May 08, 2008, 07:06:58 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?

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).
