I was referring to a piece of software. I used to run Gkrellm and it
had a plugin (gkrellm-xkb?) which displayed a flag for the national
keyboard layout and the state of numlock & capslock. I remember
patching it to add the Romanian flag... I've since switch to conky and
minimized the number of visual distractions on my desktop.

An Xfce-specific work seems to be xfce4-kbdleds-plugin, details at
