    Just install the package xkeycaps, while in Xwindows, and launch the program. It'll give you a picture of a keyboard. Then, just click on the scroll-lock key that's represented. This will turn the scroll-lock key function back on. It also gives you the option to create a script that you can enable each time you log into Xwindows.

    Just install the package "xkeycaps", while in Xwindows. After it's installed, start it up. It'll give you a representation of your keyboard. Then click on the representation of your scroll-lock key. This turns its functionality back on. Now, you should be able to turn the light on your keyboard on and off with the scroll-lock key.

    xkeycaps also gives you the opportunity to write-out these changes to a script that can then used during your Linux account bootup, so you don't have to repeat this process each time you login.

    Hope this helps.

    What Linux distro are you using?
