How to Enable Number Lock? (SOLVED)
« on: July 26, 2017, 12:31:28 pm »
Hey, I'm new to this OS. I am trying to locate the Number Lock preference so that when I boot up,
the number lock will automatically be On. How do I do this? I saw under System Preferences, it
says something about Restore Number Lock On Start Up... though it is checked... the number lock
does NOT come on once booted into the OS. I even tried UN-checking it to see if there would be
any change and NADA.

My keyboard is a typical 105 with option keys at the top. Number Lock has worked with other OS's,
but not on Peppermint. Please help!

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install numlockxthen rebooting helps ?
