One of the biggest things was figuring out how to use numlockx from the CLI to start with.  Once I got that working with the xinit session it was only a little more playing around.

But getting to that point was a nightmare.  None of the guides I found online even came close to doing the trick.

Remember that, on a command-line system, “only one command” is like
“only granted one wish”. What do you wish for? More wishes, of
