  • Happy 4.4 User

  • Linux Lite: 4.4 64bit

  • CPU: Intel Atom N570

  • MEMORY: 1Gb
During my test runs of 4.4, I was unable to type words using the right hand side of the keyboard until I figured out the Fn key was needed.  I suggest that somewhere prominently a warning about NumLk be displayed for new users before they attempt to install.

The issue would be setting up the log in password, which would be compromised by typing (and not seeing) the incorrect password due to the NumLk requirement.  This confusion could be quite daunting for newbies and the unaware.  Otherwise, except for the presence of Google everywhere, I love Linux Lite 4.4 and thank Jerry and all the other developers that have given us the beautiful, free operating system.
