trying to get numlock to get turned on before login,preferably at GRUB but at least before the login prompt. I have tried numlockx but as I have no GUI it does not work. How do I do this?

OpenSUSE Install :: NumLock Turned Off During Boot

Mar 2, 2010

I have numlock set to on in my system BIOS. After Opensuse 11.2 starts to boot it turns numlock off. After entering my password KDE turns numlock back on. I have just changed my login password to include some number and out of habit try to input the numbers using the keypad - which always fails because Opensuse turned off numlock during boot. This is very inconvenient having to hit the numlck key to enable the keypad. Why is Opensuse disabling numlock during boot and how can I fix it so it stays turned on from boot right through until KDE4 has fully loaded?

OpenSUSE Install :: No NumLock In KDE Login Screen

Dec 19, 2009

I want to have numlock always on in the log-in screen, but I can't get it to work - I always have to activate it manually. I've tried out System Settings > Keyboard > Numlock > Turn on both as normal user and as root, but it simply doesn't work. I'm using openSuse 11.2 x64 w/ Kde 4.3.4 (updated from 4.3.1 w/ Kde repositories).

Debian Multimedia :: NumLock Option Disabled At Login

Jul 29, 2010

Using squeeze here. Until recent updates to xserver, my numlock worked as expected, but now the damn thing won't stay on anymore. Numlockx is still broken as it's always been for me in that it turns the numlock on but not the led on the keybord. I'm using slim as a login manager which everytime it's updated they set the numlock option to disabled for whaterver reason, but then that doesn't work if I enable it anyway (why have it?). So what is it with debain/(Linux) and their obsession with disabled numlocks at login, I don't get it?

I turned on my computer today (running Ubuntu 10.10) and it will go to the login screen where it shows the time at the bottom right and the restart and shutdown button, and also my computer name in the middle of the screen but it does not show my account name. My mouse and keyboard work fine there is just know where to login at. I'm still pretty new to ubuntu so I'm not to sure where to begin.

Ubuntu :: Login Background / Gdm Theme Has Turned Black

Jun 27, 2011

I just installed xubuntu natty, and the gdm theme (xubuntu-gdm-theme) has somehow reverted to something ugly. The background is black instead of showing xubuntu-greybird.png, the panel bar is light gray, and the shutdown button is now gray instead of a red/orange power icon.

The problem appeared while I was tweaking my account settings, possibly when I used the users-admin tool, but I'm not sure.

I tried purging and reinstalling the following packages:


...but that didn't help.

For comparison, I'm attaching screen shots of my (broken) gdm screen and a correct one from a virtual machine. (Try to ignore the fact that they're different screen resolutions.)

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Switch Can't Be Turned On Again After Being Turned Off

Feb 2, 2010

The wireless connection works fine. The wireless switch automatically turns itself on every time I start the computer. However, after turning it off, I can't ever turn it on again unless I restart the computer. And because of this, the wireless connection is disabled until the next time I start the computer.I don't think this is a hardware problem because the switch can be turned on and off, although not in the way I expect.

I'm using ubuntu 9.10 on an Acer Aspire 4740G. The command [lspci | grep Network] shows Atheros Communications Inc. AR928X Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01). the [rfkill list] command shows (when the switch is on)

0: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no

and, as expected, shows (when the switch is turned off)

0: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: yes

I just want to be able to turn the switch on or off at any time I want as long as the computer is still on.

Oct 16, 2010

I recently installed Fedora 13 (64-bit). I am completely new to Linux. I want the NumLock key to be on upon booting into Fedora. I have tried turning that option on inside the BIOS but it appears that Fedora ignores it. Is there perhaps a way to do it within Fedora?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: KDE 4.5.2 - Where To Lock Up NumLock

Oct 25, 2010

In KDE 4.5.2 I can't find where to lock up NUMLOCK. How do you do to have numlock on all the time? I have /etc/sysconfig/hardware/keyboard/kbd-numlock already on yes. If I try to change it I have an error : kbd service is not started.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Cannot Disable NumLock Using IBM Space Saver

Feb 10, 2010

I have set the Space Saver as my keyboard layout in the KDE control center*, but Shift+NumLock/ScrollLock still does not work as it should to disable NumLock. I have tried both ibm_space_saver and ibm_spacesaver (isn't this practically a duplicate entry?) and restarted after each, to no avail.

Also, a second, possibly related problem -- why, at the login screen, does it take so long for my keyboard and mouse to start working? Maybe ten seconds after the login prompt seems to be ready -- only then can I actually do anything.

* I think this should be in Keyboard & Mouse instead of Regional & Language, but I can understand why it's there.

Ubuntu :: Kernel Panic In 9.10 - Caps And Numlock Key Flashing

May 6, 2010

I get the usual kernel panic that kills the system, everything is unresponsive, if the screen is in screensaver it won't come out just the usual caps and numlock key flashing, if I have a tty open there is nothing dumped to screen. I have seen this happen when transferring large amounts of files to a USB NTFS formatted drive, but I have isolated that and made it occur when just doing a dist-upgrade.

I am pretty sure it is hardware but I am not sure where as this is the second build (last was 7.10 so I thought I would rebuild). dmesg and syslog don't show anything obvious beyond the below in syslog shortly before the panic. May 6 21:52:58 computar kernel: [79.296570] ondemand governor failed, too long transition latency of HW, fallback to performance governor I tried disabling ondemand by simply doing the below to no avail.

Ubuntu :: NumLock Pad Stopped Working - Preference Not Persistent

Dec 17, 2010

I have an HP laptop with a separate numlock keypad. About six months ago, I noticed the number keys were not pressing numbers. I eventually googled it and found that there's a setting in Ubuntu to set the numlock keys as cursor movement.

System > Preferences > Keyboard Preferences > Mouse Keys > DESELECT "Pointer Can Be Controlled Using the Keypad"

I did this and the numlock keys worked. However, a few reboots later I noticed the behavior was back. Again I googled and deselected the checkbox. I noticed again today that this unwanted behavior has returned. Why aren't my preferences persistent?

Slackware :: Enable NumLock And Then Disable The Button Completely

Jan 8, 2010

I've got 5 users who share a bunch of virtual Windows XP guests via VRDP (VirtualBox RDP access), and I'm having some problems with managing their NumLock state. They all use rdesktop to access the Windows XP machines. This works very well, as long as all of them have NumLock enabled. If one of them disables it by mistake, and then logs into one of the Windows XP machines, NumLock is disabled and some of the programs they use start to act really weird. This is causing us some grief.

So I'd like to be able to enable NumLock on all the computers (they are all running Slackware 12.2) before X, while X runs and while KDE is running. And when NumLock is enabled for the entire system, thenI'd like to remove the ability to disable NumLock altogether. NumLock should always be enabled for these users, no matter what. It would be really nice if Linux/X/KDE/whatever just honored the BIOS setting, but I haven't been able to figure out how to do that. Oh, and I'd really like if the NumLock LED was ON, so everybody are made aware of the fact that they have NumLock turned on.

ps. I've tried remapping the keys on the numeric pad with xmodmap, but that doesn't solve the problem. The actual NumLock state must be set to avoid problems with the troubled Windows programs.

Fedora :: Desktop Effects Turned Off?

Nov 20, 2010

After I updated to KDE 4.5.3 in Fedora 13 I've had 2 things stop starting up when I boot up. They were working fine before the KDE update.

The first is desktop effects. I turn it on, but once I reboot then desktop effects are disabled again. When I turn them on I get a KWin message that it has been turned off by another application. How can I find out which application that is and why?

The second is Yakuake, which I want to start automatically when I boot up. I don't see where I can set it up to start automatically (and I don't remember how I did it before, or if it was automatic when I installed it).

UPDATE: I just found the autostart configuration and added Yakuake. It worked, now it runs whenever I start.
