    Recently, my CM Quickfire TK (mechanical keyboard) arrived and it has a unique feature where it combines the 10 key numpad and the arrow key/home, end, pgup etc., in one portion of the keyboard, making it smaller and more ergonomic.

    Unfortunatly, since Mac OS X doesn't support the use of the Num Lock key, I am forced to use two terminal scripts - to turn on and off numlock. Hence, I was wondering if it possible to assign these scripts to a function key or even the Num Lock key itself so I don't have to open the file each time I wish to switch between the two modes.

    Thank you

    The silly method in my mind is to make a your scripts become an apps. And then set the num lock key as an Apps Shortcut in system preferences -> keyboard.
