grp_led:caps no longer works (regression from GNOME 3.4)
Submitted by Kamil Páral
In GNOME 3.4 I used caps lock indicator to see whether my primary or secondary keyboard layout is active. That is controlled by "grp_led:caps" xkb option. I also used CapsLock to switch the layouts. That is controlled by "grp:caps_toggle" option.
This was my old configuration:
org.gnome.libgnomekbd.keyboard options ['grp\tgrp:caps_toggle', 'altwin\taltwin:super_win', 'terminate\tterminate:ctrl_alt_bksp', 'grp_led\tgrp_led:caps']
In GNOME 3.6, the control center was reworked substantially and all the advanced options are in gnome-tweak-tool now. CapsLock can still be used to switch between layouts. But the indicator no longer works. This is my new configuration:
org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.keyboard input-sources-switcher 'caps' org.gnome.desktop.input-sources xkb-options ['altwin:super_win', 'terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp', 'grp_led:caps']
As you can see, it should be set up correctly. Still the CapsLock indicator doesn't work. It flashes briefly when changing layouts, but otherwise stays OFF all the time. It is not enabled even if I enable the "real" CapsLock functionality (by pressing Shift+CapsLock).
I'm very unhappy about that.
