Problem with Caps Lock

Thu Mar 14, 2013 11:11 pm

I have a strange problem with my Raspberry Pi. The problem is that the caps lock light on my keyboard does not light when caps lock is on. On the text console this problem is evident, but if I start the X server and toggle the caps lock the light correctly lights when caps lock is enabled.

Caps lock is being enabled and disabled, but the light is not lighting. I have tried a different USB keyboard and it does exactly the same thing.

(Also, if I attach 2 keyboards at the same time, toggling num lock and scroll lock on one keyboard causes the lights on both keyboards to light. I don't really care about this, as I am only ever going to use one keyboard with my Pi).

Any ideas on how to fix this?
