Description Fred New 2005-04-04 12:43:03 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050328 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-3

Description of problem:
According to the xset man page, "xset led" is supposed to turn all of the LEDs
on the keyboard.  And "xset -led" is supposed to turn them all off.  But this
doesn't happen; only the Scroll Lock LED turns on and off.  Not only that, but
I cannot get the "xset led nn" command to work except for "xset led 3", which
again controls the Scroll Lock LED.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into Gnome.
2. Open a terminal window.
3. xset led

Actual Results:  Only the Scroll Lock LED lights up.

Expected Results:  All 3 LEDs should light up.

Additional info:

The xset command also works this way on my FC3 system.

Please file a bug report in X.Org bugzilla to track this issue,
