    Right -- this all works --

    to get keyboard status indicator panel plugin


    Download and extract (decompress) this package to a directory

    http://git.xfce.org/panel-plugins/xfce4-kbdleds-plugin/

    load these packages:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install intltool libxfce4ui-1-dev xfce4-panel-dev xorg-dev
    (someone on this thread said xserver-xorg-dev will be smaller than xorg-dev and still work)

    change to the directory and configure with this command:

    Code:
    ./configure --prefix=/usr
    then compile it:

    Code:
    make && sudo make install
    gives you a "Kbleds" plugin. Add it to your panel.

    The amd64 deb for oneiric seems to work in precise as well. In fact, precise gnome-shell seems to come with this or something very similar already included. I haven't tried 12.04 Xfce4-desktop yet but it worked fine in 11.10 Xfce-desktop.
