Bug Description


     I'm running Artful update 2012-08-12
I reproduced what I did for Unity, nevertheless NumLock is never automatically activated

    Here is what I did:
sudo apt-get install numlockx
sudo nano /etc/gdm3/Init/Default
    Add before "exit 0":
if [ -x /usr/bin/numlockx ]; then
exec /usr/bin/numlockx on
