Bug Description

When having the German(neo2) keyboard layout selected, numlock is not working correctly:

* The numlock key does not allow tow toggle numlock state
* To toggle numlock on/off another layout has to be selected
* If numlock is activated FN keys are not working (only if neo2 layout is selected)
* FN keys work if Numlock is deactivated
* trying to activate numlock using numlockx gives the following error:
