    Red face [SOLVED] Caps lock light reversed

    I was working on my computer, and I hit some key combination (not sure which one, sorry) and now my Caps Lock light on my keyboard is wonky. If caps lock is OFF, the light is ON, and when caps lock is ON, the light is OFF. This is already driving my crazy, and it only happened 15 minutes ago! Any ideas how to fix it? Thanks!
    My configuration: Custom built desktop with an MSI P55-GD3 motherboard, Nvidia GTS 240 1GB GPU, 4 GB Corsair RAM, D-Link wireless card, 3 HDDs of various sizes, all wrapped up in an Antec 900 case with 5 fans and a Corsair 650W power supply.

    This might not be a "proper" fix, but have you tried rebooting? Maybe it's just a glitch of some kind?

    I did try logging off and back on, which fixed it. Odd little glitch, though. I don't even know what I did to trigger it in the first place.

    I'm glad you found the answer to that. I don't have mouseemu installed, so I can't try it. I'll mark this thread as solved for posterity, though. That, and the problem hasn't come back for me.

    I'm having the same issue with my caps lock spontaneously inverting. Removing the mouseemu package, though, doesn't affect the problem, because it's not installed to begin with.
    Can we mark this unsolved? Anybody else seen this problem?
