In my new Samsung laptop there is no caps lock indicator, no light...nothing. I was wondering whether there is any software is available that can display/alert to me whenever caps lock is ON

Key Lock Indicator :

Not all laptops come with a Caps lock or Num lock indicator or even button and this is why this indicator becomes necessary to know whether or not caps lock is on or not. It notifies every time there is a change in the state of the key. By default, it pops in panel when the locks are turned on but it can be configured to always stay in panel even when locks are off. This applet needs a restart to reflect the changes for the first time.

Ubuntu-Applet-Keylock To install Key Lock:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tsbarnes/indicator-keylock
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indicator-keylock

There's a PPA for indicator-keylock that does this.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tsbarnes/indicator-keylock
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indicator-keylock

For KDE users, there's KeyLeds, Xfce has kbdleds and gnome3 has Lock Keys
