Num-lock on Plasma 5 + Current + 64 bit


This minor problem I'm find frustrating.

I have set in settings for my Logitech 104 key Value keyboard, to set the keyboard to num-lock when KDE5 starts. It simply, and definitely, remains off. I can press the key after KDE starts, and the light comes on and stay on for the number pad as expected.

This function works as expected in XFCE4.

I have tried different keyboard types from the drop down, but nothing works with KDE 5. All other keys work normally.

Does any one else see this behavior?

I search the forum and did not find anything that helped.

I don't have a Logitech keyboard. I wonder if System Settings->Startup and Shutdown->Autostart and run a script would work. It seems like a long term issue: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=201686

Thank-you both for your responses.

I thought of one thing I modified, it may or may not have had an effect. When I first went to current, on this system, several months ago, I switched the login manager to slim. It is on SBo. I will investigate and see if that has anything to do with this problem. I will report back.

I read through the link RadicalDreamer posted. I edited /etc/slim.conf and removed the # sign in front of numlock on, and Num Lock is on in KDE 5 on a cold boot. So, this is solved.

Thank-you again.
