[Solved] Scroll lock key

Post#1 by jonoww » 17 Feb 2020, 14:53


The laptop I am using always boots with the Scroll lock turned on. Is there a way to have this turned off on boot?

Currently I found:

run_command=xdotool key Scroll_Lock; setxkbmap -option caps:none; xmodmap -e 'keycode 77 ='

but this just prevents me from turing the Scroll lock off.

jonoww, you put [Solved] in front of your thread title. That suggests the issue is solved, but I do not find the solution in your above post that did satisfy you, only one that seems to create another issue.

Could you please add either the solution into this thread for others who might encounter a similar issue or remove the [Solved] from the title.

Thanks in advance. :)
Yours Rava
