New PKGBUILD, same old bash script inside. I only updated URLs to point to the new download location!

I had a problem with the payment for the server. It should be back online soon.

Sorry about that

I can orphan this package if you want to adopt it. I don't use it anymore, since I use "Extending getty@.service" method described on "Activating Numlock on Bootup" wiki page[3].

Just to say I totally forgot about this package. I'm glad support has been keept. (the migration to the git-based AUR repos)

It's just a bash script that basicly send the "numlock on" command on the 6 firts TTY. It a bit of an hack but it works generally.

Doesn't work for me :(

I'm using a desktop PC with a Logitech Deluxe 250 keyboard (connected to a PS2 port using a USB to PS2 adapter). Installed and enabled the service, but it doesn't work. If I launch the binary as user:

$ numlockOnTty
KDSKBLED: Operation not permitted
/usr/bin/numlockOnTty: line 8: /dev/tty2: Permission denied
/usr/bin/numlockOnTty: line 8: /dev/tty3: Permission denied
/usr/bin/numlockOnTty: line 8: /dev/tty4: Permission denied
/usr/bin/numlockOnTty: line 8: /dev/tty5: Permission denied
/usr/bin/numlockOnTty: line 8: /dev/tty6: Permission denied

If I launch it as superuser, there's no output on the console, but it does neither work.

It should works now.

Files was still hosted on a friend's server, wich have some technical issues... Now I host everithing on my own.

I've edited the PKGBUILD so, it's a new release.

Thanks for reporting
