    Caps lock indicator for Ubuntu unity 19.04

    Was wondering if anyone knows of a caps lock indicator for ubuntu unity desktop 19.04. The one I was using before does not seem to be updated yet for 19.04(tsbarnes/indicator-keylock), another one I found has not been updated for three years. I know there are some extensions for the gnome desktop, but don't think they can work on unity. Do I have to hope that tsbarmes will some day update or is there another indicator that will work? Thank you.

    This is what I use:https://askubuntu.com/questions/7994...r-mate-desktop. It works beautifully.

    What Am I doing wrong?
    Code:
     /opt> python lks-indicator/usr/bin/python: can't find '__main__' module in 'lks-indicator'
    did do sudo chmod on the second time, still getting this error.

    Maybe try the .deb, it's as old as the git you're getting but should still work. Link down the git page
    https://github.com/SergKolo/lks-indicator

    Install with apt and also install python-gi package.
    Can be tested with command of lks-indicator If working ok add it to startup applications
