Commit message

Set numlock-state to 'off' to fix bug #1179018.

Description of the change

This is set to "unknown" by default for some strange reason.

Yes, this is supposed to be the string "off" and not boolean false. Also strange.

I don't suppose this will fix anything. The bug appeared after some x... package was pulled in for preserving numlock state in greeter. But if you're sure this fixes things, go ahead.

I'm not entirely convinced this is the cause, I have considered numlockx as well and will follow up on that. The reason this dconf entry interests me is because I suspect there could be a second keyboard problem going on. I talked to some affected users and it seems they were only able to get rid of the problem, after monkeying with settings, by adding a new keyboard layout. Keyboard layouts being the domain of this key and its neighbors.

Even if this goes nowhere, it won't hurt to change a value from unknown to something valid.
