how to enable the numlock on login screen for Garuda lxqt edition.?
### NumLock on by default Install the [numlockx](https://archlinux.org/packages/?name=numlockx) package and then edit `/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf`: /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf [Seat:*] greeter-setup-script=/usr/bin/numlockx on
Source : LightDM - ArchWiki
Numlockx was installed on the OS already. i saw it in Add/remove software.
i opened the folder /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf on file system
i opened lightdm.conf text file and inserted "greeter-setup-script=/usr/bin/numlockx on " under the heading of [Seat:*]..i saved the text file .. restarted the computer..
numlock was not there.
did i do it wrong way?
I can't help you at the moment because Gitlab is down and I can't see lightdm.conf
So, comming back on the topic,

You have to go to it and add
Also keep in mind that you should also search on search engines like Duckduckgo or Whoogle to save time. It is a common request on many LXQT Forums, so you can easily get it.
Is it correct?
I think so.
So, is it working?
No it do not work. thanks for help. i will keep trying.
Yep, I use lxqt. Lxqt uses sddm as display manager so lightdm don't matter here.
To enable NumLock set Numlock to false in /etc/sddm.conf like this:
Tried with Numlock=false and Numlock=on seperately..the keyboard layout also changed to English(us) default. But it did not work.
It works for me
make sure NumLock=on is not commented and under the [General] section.
here is my sddm.conf..Please rely with corrected one..I will copy, paste it . Thanks
Tried it "numlock=on" also.
n should be capital N
