Go to: Menu > Settings > Default Applications for LXSesson. Go to the Autostart tab. There's a place with button that says +Add where you can manually add applications for autostart. Type "numlockx" (without the quotes) in the box and hit add. Log out and log back in to see if it worked.

Hi All

I just usually go to a terminal and type

Code: [Select]
numlockx on

This survives a reboot (for me) - job done

Conversely use

Code: [Select]
numlockx off
to turn it off again

Shouldn't it be "off then on again"? ;)
