[INFO] Numlock is standard on

Post by erikdubois »

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.

keyboard settings set to off

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

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
