Num Lock


Something bugging me is Num Lock always off by default on remote servers...

When booting, my machines go straight away in KDE. What do I need to do to make sure that both in X server and KDE, the num lock is automatically switched on?

Thank for the advice!

Safest would be to give each user
a .xsession file, that starts numlockx
before the windowmanager, regardless
of what you're using.

Other than that I believe that
KDE has a setting for that ;)

Cheers,
Tink

Duhh! Just a matter of RTFM again. Clear setting in KDE.
Thanks for pointing it out anyway!
