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

No mater where your at... There you are.


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.
