Hi Experts

I got T430 Lenovo which got RHEL Open Edition  Linux 6 which has no indication whether the CapsLock is ON or OFF, even it does not indicate when I type password in some web forms. Machine Keyboard  do not have any light indication like other machines.
Please provide your valuable inputs to resolve this issue.

thanks in advance!

The caps lock light should not be affected by the operating system.

Try going into BIOS setup on the laptop and seeing if the caps lock light works, if it does not, then it is a hardware fault.

Having just checked the specs for the T430, I think I understand, the T430 does not have a physical caps lock light, with the appropriate Lenovo Windows application/driver, the caps lock indication is on screen.

There is indicator-keylock for Ubuntu, but I do not know of a direct equivalent for RHEL, but you might look at https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/36/lock-keys/

If you want a "point and click" install, you might well be out if luck.

Why not try Ubuntu instead of RHEL?

Or try opening a case with RHEL support...
