Add "Enable/disable numlock at startup" option to installer and YaST
Related thread: https://features.opensuse.org/310152
Some people who don't have a QWERTY layout can't use the numbers on the top of the keyboard. I'm an
AZERTY user so I have to hold Shift to use the numbers on top of the keyboard. Therefore I usually prefer using the numpad, but that isn't possible if the numlock is switched off. Auto-enabling numlock at startup would be a huge time-saver.
Some people on the other hand prefer having numlock switched off. Quoting Ned Ulbricht: "Enabling NumLock at boot would be very annoying on ThinkPads (and possibly other laptops) that overlay the numeric keypad on top of the alphabetic keys."
I think the best way to resolve this little annoyance is to offer the user a choice during install as to what the default setting should be.
Or even better: if it's possible to auto-detect which numlock setting is most desirable depending on the keyboard, the user doesn't even need to be presented this option.
Additionally, I'd like to see this option added to the "System Keyboard Layout" applet in YaST.
This satisfies people who need to disable numlock for their keyboard to work properly and people who prefer using the numpad.
