A SEAL SHIELD SSWKSV208DE r2 keyboard
I have had a small problem with the scroll-lock key in Manjaro linux KDE but other linux users should have almost the same problem with Seal Shield (Holtek) keyboard chipsets in linux because the LED was not functional the key function self was no problem. i think its a strange happening because have never have keyboard troubles before but have A Seal Shield washable with German key.
In short for example if you make a hidden text file in your ~/home partition in linux make it hidden after write the rule [ add mod3 = Scroll_Lock ] in a text file with a dot before the filename like .Xmod map and write in this file only this rule nothing more . reboot and look the led is working, more to read about this strange behavior i have found here the page what solved . but this solved for every linux distro the working led screen lock problem. only one mistake was found because the key was not disabled but only the LED on /off function by pressing the scroll lock key.
Why is the Scroll Lock key disabled in Cinnamon Linux Xorg
