I propose these modifications for the french translation : "Verrouillage Numérique et Vérrouillage Majuscules" -> "Verrouillage numérique et verrouillage majuscules" "Verrouillage Numérique uniquement" -> "Verrouillage numérique uniquement" "Verrouillage Majuscules uniquement" -> "Verrouillage majuscule uniquement" or "Verrouillage des majuscules uniquement"

Doesn't work with Barrier app, but that is due to a bug with Barrier

hi can you add scroll lock too? Mint already comes with on-screen indicators when caps & num lock are toggled & many keyboards also have LEDs for those, but there's zero support for any kind of scroll lock indicator anywhere that I've found. the only way I know to test when it's on or off is by going into open office calc & seeing how the scrolling behaves. please help thank you

Hello, there! Is there any chance to hide the icon when is off instead of showing gray? Thanks!

Hello Carlos! Go to main folder > show hidden folders > open .local > share > cinnamon > applets > betterlock > icons > rename the desired icon like that, for example: caps-off-symbolic.svg.none Sincerely Cyrilux from France

Some 2019 laptops, like my Acer Aspire 5, come with no LED indicator to let the user know when CAPS/NUM/SCROLL LOCK is on or off. Comes this amazing applet to save the day! I'm really glad this Cinnamon applet is a thing. Good job!

The best NUM LOCK and CAPS LOCK key indicator !! Congratulations for the great work! Do you have any plans to develop something similar for Gnome, especially with the Ubuntu distro?

So helpful. I have a generic keyboard and the light isn't responding well, this applet helps me a lot.

There is something magical about this applet. I just stare at the icon and keep hitting the caps lock button. Light turns on, light turns off, light turns on, light turns off, light turns on, light turns off, light turns on, light turns off, light turns on, light turns off, light turns on, light turns off, light turns on, light turns off, :) , :(, :) , :(, :) , :(, :) , :(, :) , :(, :) , :(, :) , :(, :) , :(, :) , :(, :) , :(, :) , :(, :) , :(, happy, sad, happy, sad.............

Hello, thank you very much for such a useful tool. And thank you for changing the light grey to a stronger one, too. Anyway, I have another feature request. What about an option that makes the app beep on changes of the Caps/Num Lock status? Since I don't watch the right top or bottom corner while writing. So I would appreciate such a feature very much! Thank you! Demal

You can activate sound for notifications in Cinnamon itself: Menu -> Preferences -> Sound -> Sound Effects -> Showing notifications Turn on the switch for »Showing notifications«. You can even choose your own sound file.

Thanks for this very useful applet. However, in a light gray panel it's very difficult to see the difference when it' on or off. Is there a way I could customize it (a css tweak maybe) to make it a little darker when num/caps are active? Thanks!

I changed the applet to use symbolic icons instead of full color icons. This makes the icons better visible.

Grabiel, an easy way to do it is by changing/editting the icons the applet uses. Not to steal betterlock's spotlight but i have done the exact same thing https://github.com/Lt-Mayonesa/keylockstatus
