Num Lock off but on
 
Hi,

Just the other day i noticed when the Num Lock LED is off i can type
with the keypad numeral's. But when the LED is on it is dead. Any
ideas?

Worked fine for ages.

Cheers

Mark

Are you using numlockx by chance? I know in Stable, numlockx turns
numlock on, but the LED stays off.

Installing numlockx seems to have solved the problem, will wait till
next reboot. Now have LED on and numerical keypad works. 1234567890

Sometimes, when running on X session, "Caps Lock" key goes nuts and
behaves the opposite (on → lowercase, off → uppercase), similar to your
Num Lock key problem. Relogin (or restarting X server) returns the sanity
to this key :-)
