Solaris Num Lock
Posted on 1997-03-11
OK, my first question...
On a Sun Ultra-1 Sparc workstation running Solaris 2.5.1, X-Windows and CDE (ver?), the Num Lock key when on is causing many important keys to stop working in several applications, keys not on the number keypad, like the function keys, even return, etc.
I want a way to set the Num Lock key to a certain state (off) and lock it so it cannot change state again during that session. Then hopefully be able to map the key as a normal functioning key for application use.
I have searched through Deja News and while people asked this question, and some implied its possible, no solutions. Also, there were many similar questions about how to control that Num Lock key, and why is it such a problem.
Give me your best solution and easiest solution.
