I have just bought a new laptop and realised that there are no LEDs indicating the sate of Caps Lock, Num Lock etc.

Is there anything that will display the current state of the keyboard LEDs on the top bar of Unity?

Answer is yes, there is:


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tsbarnes/indicator-keylock
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indicator-keylock


Logout and login again after install.

EDIT: just installed myself too, I like the fact that when the CAPS is tuned on, you get a nice message on the same style as other system messages.

Thanks!
There's a number of niggly issues with it that I will take to launchpad - but it's a lot better than what I had before :)
