How to enable numlock at boot time for login screen?



Here's what worked for me:

    Ensure that numlockx is installed:

    sudo apt-get install numlockx


    Edit the file /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

    gksudo leafpad /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

    Add the following line to the file:

    greeter-setup-script=/usr/bin/numlockx on

Is there something else besides just installing the tool?
Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be working in my case. the numlock light flashes a few times at boot time, but then remains turned off for the logging.
I've tried both greeter-setup-script=/usr/bin/numlockx on and greeter-setup-script=/usr/bin/numlockx toggle, the result is the same.
