I have to enable the Num Lock key everytime I boot opensuse, any fix?

If your system starts with it off then something needs to turn it on. My
numlock is on when I get logged in which is probably what you’re after. I
think this is remembered by the system by default, and I found a setting
in gconf-editor that looks promising by searching for ‘numlock’ within
Not sure that is the setting, but it sounds right and it’s enabled on my

I’m on KDE, so whats KDE equivalent of gnome gconf-editor?
Personal Settings → Input Devices → Keyboard
There’s a numlock setting with choices between “Turn on”, “Turn off” and “leave unchanged”. I have it set at “leave unchanged” because the system BIOS already sets it on at boot. But if I were to turn it off with the numlock key, logout, then login again, it might start turned off with that setting.
Till gnome 2.x num lock worked fine on my desktop.But though i have set org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.keyboard.remember-numlock-state to true/checked gnome 3.X is not able to do the job correctly.Kindly advise
You can also set a general Linux Num Lock preference via YaST2 by navigating to /etc/sysconfig Editor|Hardware|Keyboard|KBD_NUMLOCK.
Choose your preference there and it will be adopted at boot.
Do we have a bug in GNOME3 here? Tried chaning values in /etc/sysconfigeditor, gconf-editor, no changes, NUMLOCK is still off after login.
