Keyboard - corsair k55 rgb

Hi please,
what should be the well keyboard parameters to turn on the numerical pad when starting Manjaro
Note: some times ago, that was OK only when activating the numerical pad in Manjaro keyboard parameters…

Thanks a lot …

Moderator edit: In the future, please use proper formatting: [HowTo] Post command output and file content as formatted text

Find ‘Keyboard’ and then ‘NumLock’ will have 3 options, you want ‘Turn On’ to - well - turn it on.

To format CODE in the forum, you can select your text and click on the </> icon in the forum, or you can type backticks.
If you type this:

Then you will see this:

of course that had previously done…and the machine restarted. But that run not !
At launching MANJARO, i shall manually turn-on the numerical pad even if your suggested action had been done …
Maybe the keyboard is not Generic 104 keys ???

Only you would know that - but regardless, even if you have a separate Numpad, the numlock should be set by settings when you log in.

My wireless numpad is also set at login.

If this is not working, there maybe something wrong in the configuration - did you test this with a new user?

I don’t know if it’ll help with what you’re looking for, but take a look at OpenRGB:

There’s also CKB-next that might help:


I think it’ll still show as that. This is with my Corsair K68:

It appears with OPENRGB that “save” does not work with the K55 RGB Corsair … surprised!
So why was “saving” okay six months ago and not today?
note: RGB is ok … true - with my mouse Cougar too.

your choise is 105 key generic … ans that will “save” the turn-on the numerical pad ?

Well, that is my setting and it’s honored. When I (albeit seldomly) restart my computer, num lock is indeed enabled. Try CKB-next, that’s what I use. I just know of OpenRGB…


It seems the K55 is supported:

what shall i do ?

CKB-next is in the AUR:

$ pamac search ckb-next
ckb-next  0.6.0-1 [Installed]                                                                                                                                                                                                                             AUR
Corsair Keyboard and Mouse Input Driver, release version

So it can be installed with:

pamac build ckb-next

And that’s all I can help you with I’m afraid. Only you know your system, and I don’t have a K55.
