numlockx issue
« on: October 19, 2019, 08:06:01 PM »
Hello:

Having suitably solved the problems I was having with Thunar in TC 10.1 (went for xfe and that was it) I now have one with numlockx.

- it is in the OnBoot list
- it is in bootlocal.sh - ie: numlockx on
- it works perfectly well when run from the command line - ie: numlockx on | off respond properly

But numlock is not on when the desktop is up.
Quite annoying.
 
Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

MM

Hi madmax
Remove the  numlockx  command from your  bootlocal.sh,  it won't work from there because  X  is not running yet. Do this instead:
Code: [Select]
echo "numlockx on &" > .X.d/numlock

Hello Rich:
Remove the  numlockx  command from your  bootlocal.sh ....
OK, done.

... won't work from there because X is not running yet.
Ahh ...
Yes, now I realise that it stopped working properly after I installed Xorg in lieu of xVesa.
One new thing to keep in mind.

Do this instead:
Code: [Select]
echo "numlockx on &" > .X.d/numlock
Done

Thanks a lot for your input.

Cheers,

MM
