[INFO] Numlock is standard on

Post by erikdubois » Tue Nov 14, 2017 3:45 pm

ArchMerge has an application called numlock.
It is set to be 'on' at boot.
That is fine for desktop people with keyboard and separate numeric keypad
It is even fine for laptop users with separate keypad.
For the smaller laptops with no separate keypad it can be a nuisance.

Xfce
keyboard settings set to off

Openbox
Set numlockx to off in ~/.config/openbox/autostart

i3
Set numlockx to off in ./.config/i3/config

ArchMergeD does NOT have that application hence you need to install and activate the num lock manually.

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -S numlockx
numlockx on
