Keybindings are not working with scroll lock enabled

I installed garuda bspwm few hours ago and i have keyboard which uses scroll lock key to toggle rgb lights so i entered this command xmodmap -e 'add mod3 = Scroll_Lock', rgb works but when the scroll lock key is toggled all keybindings stop working and they return to normal after toggling it again.

I think what you've effectively done there is to add another modifier key - so you've essentially added what's like a shift or ctrl key which you toggle on and off.

Therefore, when you toggle it on it's like holding down the shift key - and so shortcuts won't work as expected.

Bypass what problem? You have explicitly made your Scroll Lock into a modifier key. The solution is to not do that.

I think @SGS need to create another button for the forum as this answer seems applicable in about 50% of the help requests.

Button:

Well then, don't do that!!!
