Lock Keys Applet

This is a MATE panel applet that shows which of the CapsLock, NumLock and ScrollLock keys are on and which are off.


  • Fedora Linux: the applet is now part of the official repo! yum install mate-applet-lockkeys
  • Arch Linux: the applet will soon be in the official Arch’s repo!

To install from source:

./configure && make && make install

To build an RPM:

./configure --prefix=/usr && make && make rpm

When installed, right-click the panel, chose “Add to Panel” and select “Keyboard LED Indicator” from the list.


Based on original code by Juergen Scheibengruber, <mfcn at gmx dot de>.


The applet is part of the mate-desktop-fedora-extra repo, so you should first try it.

    Hello. Will you add this “mate-applet-lockkeys” as a Flatpak? Your applet has a better appearance than the one that is included in Mate-Tweak.

      Hello! No, I have no plans for a flat pack – feel free to pick up the code and package it.
