I have a Unicomp keyboard which I love but the Scroll Lock LED doesn't light up. I complained and they sent me a new circuit board which I installed but it didn't fix it. I sent the keyboard in and they fixed it and sent it back to me but it still doesn't work. They insist it was working when it left their facility and that something must be happening on my end. Any idea what that could be?

Does it work in BIOS setup or other preboot situation, grub, etc.? Actually it's only in X that really gets it taken over.

The scroll lock LED can be controlled by software and not keyboard only, ever since the IBM AT days (oh gosh, I think XT too but I don't remember...) - this is normal.

Does `echo 1 > /sys/class/leds/input*\:\:scrolllock/brightness` do anything?
