How can I get the numlock key to default to on when I start KDE? I have managed to get it to default to on in the text based terminals, but as soon as I start KDE,, it turns off again.
thanks,

This question has been here before. I thought it turned out that you will have to edit the X source code if you want that. I don't think you want it anyway since a lot of your normal keybindings change when you turn on numlock in X.

Actually, even the sources aren't going to help unless you are into major hackery. I was at least one of those working that question, and did find in the X server sources where NumLock is forced off. I also finally managed to get it forced on, but in my opinion it's simply not worth the effort to change it.

It dosen't work that way. What you can do if you want to split the points is to reduce the points for the question to 50, select mine or Reinier's comment as an answer & grade it. Then post another question for 50 points titled something like: "Points for jlevie" or "Points for Reinier". Whoever the second question is for will "Propose an answer" to collect the points.

Hi frenomulax,

As jlevie stated, it does not quite work that way. Since you wish to award 100 points each, you can accept one of the comments as an answer for this thread and post a new question in this topic area for the other expert.
