    ... except that the switches that pop up from the indicator don't do anything. But all I need is the indcator anyway.

    Easy fix: Go into ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/ and rename the folder named lock to lock@dalcde Works great.

    This app doesnt work, it really doesnt and fails to load on later versions of cinnamon. Seriously I wish this would have a fork or something as I own a keyboard without a caps lock indicator.

    I installed this on Mint 16 and am unable to view the applet on panel although it is added. Please look into this. Does it support Mint 16 Petra? Or could it be a hardware specific issue? Mine is Logitech Wireless keyboard.

    I am using num lock/caps lock in Cinnamon/Fedora 19. The applet manager indicates that it is on the panel, but it doesn't show up. Any suggestions?

    Little cosmetic problem: With my theme ("Void", background is light grey), Lock icons are not very differents than unlocks icons. I've to edit the 2 icons "caps-on.svg" and "num-on.svg" (with some diffculty, I'm not a guru of Inkscape ;) ). They are here:

    Voliax, BillybobT just rename ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/lock to ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/lock@dalcde

    Doesn't work in Cinnamon 1.8.2 (Mint 14 Nadia)

    Very Good! Love this applet because my keyboard doesn't have the lock indicator lights.

    wonderful! thanks very much for doing this. I don't know if you did it because of my request on the Mint forum, or if it was a coincidence, but I very much appreciate it! :-) It's even better than the original.

    Hi, would it be possible to add more On/Off buttons? (e.g. Bluetooth, wifi, touchpad,...)

    Thank you. I changed the icon size to 18 since 16 is too small. btw, the original size doesn't matter since it is vector graphics, so I can scale it to any size.

    Apple helpful. For better integration, better icon size 16px, which is the original size of the icon.
