    Default On screen cap lock indicator

    Can anyone recommend a program that I can use to display the status of my cap lock button on screen? In Kubuntu I've used "keybled" but this isn't available in the repos for Suse.

    Thanks

    Just wondering if you need the indicator because you sometimes accidentally turn caps lock on. If you don't use caps lock much, you can remap it to something more useful, like Ctrl. This can be changed in the desktop setup.

    I need to be able to see if my caps are on in order to enter passwords that may be case sensitive.

    There's an indicator on my mouse cradle but it's hard to see. That's why I like it on my screen.

    But if you disable caps lock, then you can assume that everything you type is lowercase unless you press shift at the same time.
