    keyboard Caps Lock reverse on laptops

    If you have a laptop and use an external keyboard, they are out of sync on Ubuntu 12.04, at least mine.

    When you press CAPS LOCK on a laptop it stays ON and therefore it becomes reversed on the external keyboard. The same with the NUM LOCK and other keys.

    Re: keyboard Caps Lock reverse on laptops

    Hi andymgroove. Welcome to the forums

    AFAIK, each keyboard will keep its status lights but itself, but the general status is kept by the OS. That in practice means that it could give the impression of reverse, when actually there's only one state, and two sets of status lights.

    Does that help?
    Regards.
