I am getting really irritated with my keyboard. It has no indicators for
the state of CapsLock and friends. I thought it'd be nice to have a
little applet in my GNOME menu that indicates the state of the keyboard.
Is there such a thing already?
Yes, the Keyboard Accessibility Status Indicator applet does this, and
has been part of GNOME since 2.6 or so.
I tell a lie... it will show you if you've locked caps (and friends) by
pressing a Shift twice when sticky keys is turned on, but not if you
just press Caps Lock. That's possibly a good feature request :)
