I'm installing on a MacBook (the erase option, so no OSX to go back to), when I get to detect keyboard, I can only type numbers from the upper part of the keyboard. I need to toggle the NumLock to off.  Can I do this mid installation?
Thanks for reading this

Try:

Code: [Select]
numlockx off
in a terminal before installation. You can then turn it off permanently via Lite Tweaks after installation.

Hi Jerry,

I've installed LinuxLite, and I used Lite Tweaks to turn NUMLOCK off. 
I couldn't use a terminal session - as I cannot access letter symbols.
And, I still have the problem.
Hitting 7 results in 7
Hitting 8 results in 8
Hitting 9 results in 9
Hitting U results in 4
Hiting I results in 5
Hitting O results in 6
Hitting J results in 1
Hitting K results in 2
Hitting L results in 3

Some symbols around these keys, but the rest of the keyboard doesn't function.

In the KeyBoard menu in Behavior 'Restore num lock on startup is ticked
The Layout is Use system defaults.

I hope this makes some sense to you, and thanks for reading it.

Check out the Keyboard section in the Help Manual. There are some useful tips there.
