Freshly installed 14.04, CoolerMaster Storm keyboard. I'm not at all concerned with being able to toggle/turn off the LED, I simply want the LED to turn on before login, i.e. while looking at the login screen, the LED should already be on.
I've set up a keyboard shortcut to run
xset led 3, but this is less than ideal, as I have to be logged in in order to use the shortcut. I'd like this to happen automatically instead.
I'm very new to both Linux and scripting, so please ELI5/walk me through it. I know that you can run scripts at startup as per this, but I don't understand how to actually write the script or how to "put it in"
/etc/rc.local. Do I simply fire up gedit and type
xset led 3 directly into
rc.local below the
#comments, but above the
exit 0? Do I make another script somewhere else and link to it in
rc.local? Am I overthinking it (probably)?
In short, I'd like a more detailed explanation of what Mitch was saying in the link. Thanks for your time.
