  1. I get an error message at step 2.

    gdm@david-MS-7891:/root$ gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.keyboard numlock-state ‘on’

    (process:8962): dconf-WARNING **: 10:22:28.071: Unable to open /root/.local/share/flatpak/exports/share/dconf/profile/user: Permission denied
    gdm@david-MS-7891:/root$

    Any suggestions please?

    sudo gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.keyboard numlock-state ‘on’

    That’s all!

    • Using xubuntu 18.04 and was just updated. But this problem has existed with EVERY Linux install on EVERY computer I’ve used in 20 years. The ONE AND ONLY thing that drives me bats$%t crazy about linux. Windows reads the bios or eufi or whatever which says to turn on at login. ALL linux distros and desktop managers ignore this! The above doesnt work!
