NumLock is set by the greeter because it needs a windowing system, but the greeter is not running with autologin. Hence numlock will never be set.

I think this is expected. We should state that on the man page and the sddm.conf comments (the latter can be done with #530)

@plfiorini I don't like that :/ can't we do a raw x call or something?

@jleclanche it currently uses xcb_xkb which requires a display, xkbcommon might be a good candidate.
btw man page already mentioned sddm-greeter :p

I'm new to linux. I've just installed arch+lxqt+sddm in virtualbox. But how can I not only enable autologin but also activate numlock on bootup?

@goodluckclever If you go in Keyboard & Mouse settings, in Keyboard you can set it so LXQt turns NumLock on after login.

@goodluckclever or you can use numlockx or systemd-numlockontty. For more information go to the wiki.

@jleclanche Oh, how easy! I made it. Thanks a lot!
@ziggi I've read the web page you recommanded. I just wondered whether there are any other better ways. It seems that "Keyboard & Mouse settings" is the best choice. But thank you all the same!
