Bug Description


Thank you for this simple but very useful indicator, I got less frustration when typing on my keyboard, specially when it's about typing passwords!!

Some more feature that I'm really missing is supporting the (from-hell) insert key. I actually hate this key but I'd be very thankful of knowing when I got it pressed.

Thank you!

I'm not sure how possible this is, since the insert/overwrite mode that gets toggled by the insert key is handled by the applications, not the X server. If it is possible, I'll let you know, thanks for the suggestion!

It doesn't look like it's possible to track the insert key state, sorry! It's handled by the toolkit/application (and some applications don't even support it at all).

Sad to hear that, it'd be very useful :(
But I'm still confused why some keys like caps lock or num lock are being
capable to track and others aren't.
