I’ve problem with my calculate (numeric) keyboard , it hadn’t never been worked since i used manjaro xfce, it only works when I login into xfce session, then, numlock is open but no keys work.
Do you have
numlockx installed? If not, you can install it like so…
sudo pacman -S numlockx
tty sessions outside of the graphical environment, you can install
systemd-numlockontty from the AUR.
pamac build systemd-numlockontty sudo systemctl enable --now systemd-numlockontty
If neither of these two approaches help, then perhaps the problem lies with your keyboard itself ─ i.e. a hardware issue ─ or else you have chosen the wrong keyboard layout.
In the latter case, you can select a different keyboard layout in the Manjaro Settings Manager. You may need to try a few layouts (and their respective variants) before you find one that matches your actual keyboard.
yes I installed numlockx before but it didn’t help at all, I tried to use the another solution (numlockontty) and I got
"Failed to enable unit: Unit file systemd-numlockontty.service does not exist."
It can’t be a hardware problem because I can user the calculator while login and in windows OS too.
I also tried to change the layout a lot, now I’m using “dell 101 key pc” layout and it’s identical with main (I’v searched for pic).
I would recommend trying the generic
pc105 variants instead of the Dell variant.
Also, unless you have an older type of keyboard without Win-keys, you’re probably not going to want a
Mod-edit: Spelling and link to product
/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf to activate numeric keyboard before loggin : NumLock on by default
I didn’t find the
greeter-setup-script=/usr/bin/numlockx on in the conf file, so I added it by myself, but also it didn’t help
May you share your conf file?
here it’s, notice I’m the one who added numlockx on
please replace * with .
ok, the property “greeter-setup-script” is line 119 :
- uncomment the line by deleting the “#” caracter at the beginning of the line
- add the value :
- save the file
- restart your computer
- test the numeric keyboard on loggin
didn’t work too :(( it’s only work when I write my password, then when I login It doesn’t
what is the output of :
xfconf-query -c keyboards -p /Default/Numlock
[saleh@schostakovich Desktop]$ xfconf-query -c keyboards -p /Default/Numlock true
