Question USB Keypad Numlock problem


I have a debian squeeze system and using a numeric usb key pad (http://www.vatanbilgisayar.com/produ...T/v2-41510.jpg).

My problem is; I want to turn my keypad numlock on or off via software or console (or when booting).But this keypad has an asynchronus numlock key (means, if you press Numlock key on your keyboard, numlock led is still ON on numpad, you have to press the Numpad's Numlock key exactly)

So far I have tried on console:
numlockx on
numlockx off
numlockx toggle
setleds -D +num
setleds -D -num

(All of these commands effects my keyboard, not my numpad)

Can I use something like:

numlockx KEYBOARD1 on
numlockx KEYBOARD2 off
numlockx NUMPAD on

This is for keyboard:

#############################
NUMLOCK FIX
#############################
two parts first for tty console:
numlock fix
Code:
apt install -y console-tools
answer questions
Code:
nano -w /etc/console-tools/config
default is #LEDS=+num
uncomment LEDS=+num
control x,y
even if you turn numlock off on the keyboard, this will set it on at boot
-----------------------------
second part is for DE:

Code:
apt-get install -y numlockx
Code:
numlockx on
ea DE user has to do numlockx on

As for the numpad, is it showing up?
