How to set numbers lock to initiate on startup
« on: August 11, 2016, 06:05:38 pm »
Hello peppermint people. this should be an easy one for somebody. I didn't see an option anywhere in fact I didn't see a keyboard program at all in menu.So how do I enable numbers lock at startup in Peppermint 7? In my other computer there's an option in the bios settings but I couldn't find that option in this one, maybe I wasn't looking in the right place. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys

Open up a terminal window and run the following command:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install numlockx
That will install a small program that will automatically turn Numbers Lock on at startup.
