    This is nice. Improves usability. Can you make an applet that plays a sound on every keypress? something like this Thanks

    Thank you so much for making this! It works really well and it has made my computer a lot more usable. My laptop (for whatever stupid reason) does not have a caps lock LED, making it hard to know if it is on or off. this applet has solved my problem. I do wish there was a way to disable it showing the numlock thing though, because my computer does not even have a numlock button, rendering it useless. Overall good applet though. :D

    Awesome applet! I just have a problem with "Caps lock" menu switch. If I use it, the caps led do not change, but the system changes the case, so menu switch follows the Caps lock key (properly changes its state), but don't when click on caps lock menu switch. I don't know if it's an applet bug. Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit. keyboard with PS/2 connector.
