    Enable numlock by default before logging in

    Hi

    I am fairly new to this version of linux.

    I have it set so that when it boots, it automatically boots into the GUI for the operating system. This means when I load up the OS I am greeted with a login screen. My question is how to have it so NumLock is on by default at this point.

    I have looked at ways of doing it and most the ways involve using NumLockX. I have gone off several forums on how to do it, here, here, and here. However they are for Ubuntu and Debian versions of Lnux and they proved unsuccessful when I tried them on Kali. Is anyone aware of how to do it on Linux Kali? I would appreciate any help.

    Dan

    Please install numlockx, search by on google. Than change the GDM settings adding the following code to /etc/gdm3/Init/Default:

    if [ -x /usr/bin/numlockx ]; then
    /usr/bin/numlockx on
    fi
