Description:

A simple plasmoid that displays the keyboard/input-device state.

For example, it displays current state of:
* num lock status
* caps lock status
* scroll lock status
* And some others.

* Copyright (c) 2008 Sebastian Sauer


* IMPORTANT:
* This plasmoid is NOT authored by me.
* Its not a part of KDE yet and thus many distros lack it as of now (Nov 09).
* I only wish it to be here for those who need it real bad,
* for accessibility reasons or otherwise.
* Source taken from Ubuntu's Karmic packages but is not dependent on Ubuntu in ANY way.

Apart from resizing problems... it really looks AWFUL. I was looking for a nice and polished widget that integrates into the the traybar. Do we really have no other choice?

Compare to a kde3 panel applet of similar idea. When placed on the panel or size reduced similarly, this thing should have an iconized view. Right now, attempted scale to smaller sub-icon sizes fails.

Agree - the default setup takes up a lot of panel space and removing unneeded indicators causes the remaining ones to unlarge to the point where the label/icon is hidden under the bottom of the monitor.
Sigh...

Nevermind...relogin to KDE corrected the indicator icon oversize problem.

Perhaps this should be modified to use the keystate DataEngine? Just a thought.

I do not maintain this, nor do I have the skill required to work on it. Its in the KDE Playground iirc. Contact the dev about it perhaps? :)
