I've installed Ubuntu on my MBP but when I press caps lock the green light on the caps lock button will not show. I can't tell when i have caps locks on because it won't turn on. What do i do to make the light show?

While I'm not sure why this would be happening so you will have to wait for another to help you fix the problem, in the mean time there is a program that you can use that will show the cap lock key as an indicator in the top will need to add a ppa to use it. See this page for more info and instructions.... – TrailRider Feb 17 '14 at 3:05

I don't think that this will help to get the light to turn on, I know of no way to use those settings to do so.....also, it would be better to include how to get to that screen rather than just showing a random screen shot with no instructions. – TrailRider Feb 17 '14 at 3:18
I already have it set to default and it hasn't changed anything – rajlego Feb 17 '14 at 13:04
next time when i insert any picture here, i will put instructions. – Fatma Feb 17 '14 at 22:19
