Is There A Way To Permanently Have Linux Ubuntu 64-Bit Keep The Number Lock Key Always ON On My Desktop Computer When I Startup/Restart Ubuntu?
Posted on 2012-03-17
Hello. I have a question to ask you.
Actually, I am using my Linux Ubuntu 64-bit operating system as I write this and with all the of testing and playing with now; I am hooked! It is in 'my humble opinion' better than Windows in some many facets -- faster, clean, efficient, ease of use, organized, and especially free. Every major version that is released of Ubuntu, it gets much better and more automated like Windows. Since Android for Smartphones is Linux based and that in particular facet of computing is growing in popularity and the new Beta version of Windows 8 is dissing the desktop environment in favor of tiles; I have heard that many users are thinking of going to Linux operating systems like Ubuntu. It is hard to go back to Windows now Ubuntu was better than I last attempted to use Ubuntu with version 8. I love the big bold and easily to interpret Ubuntu icons instead of the stick-like Windows icons. I am sick of Windows to keep installing to get everything I want. Honestly, I will continue to use Windows, but Ubuntu will also get as much or more use from now on.
Okay, enough of my personal thoughts. I thought I would share them with you.
Just an issue with Ubuntu -- When I startup Ubuntu 64-bit, I notice each and every time regardless of the setting from the last Ubuntu session (system start/restart), that I have to always turn on my number lock key for the numeric keypad on the right side of my desktop keyboard. It is always OFF when I start a Ubuntu session (system restart). Is there a way to permanently have Ubuntu keep the number lock key always ON when I startup Ubuntu 64-bit? I never have this problem with Windows 7 64-bit remembering my number lock setting from the past Windows session.
Any answers or solutions to this issue? Some Ubuntu setting I need to change? Some third party program installation to achieve this, etc.?
