Description taylor 1999-01-14 20:57:49 UTC
This is actually a bug in xset, but I saw no xset in the options available, so I am reporting it as an xterm bug. I cannot get keyclick to work under RedHat 5.1 linux. The problem appears to exist for RH 5.2 also, but I personally know only of 5.1. Other sounds work; I can even play mp3s. I am using an xterm with the display variable set to ":0.0". Am I correct to assume that this is a bug in linux? If so, at the very least the man page of xset needs to be changed to state that keyclick does not work on linux. If not, please help in telling me (and the two other people who have posted on usenet about this same problem) what to do to make xset do what the man page says it should do. Here is the output of the xset -q command: >xset -q Keyboard Control: auto repeat: on key click percent: 100 LED mask: 00000000 auto repeat delay: 500 repeat rate: 30 auto repeating keys: 00ffffffdffffbbf fa9fffffffdffdff 7f00000000000000 0000000000000000 bell percent: 40 bell pitch: 1100 bell duration: 20 Pointer Control: acceleration: 2/1 threshold: 4 Screen Saver: prefer blanking: yes allow exposures: yes timeout: 600 cycle: 600 Colors: default colormap: 0x21 BlackPixel: 0 WhitePixel: 1 Font Path: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi:unscaled,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi Bug Mode: compatibility mode is disabled DPMS (Energy Star): Standby: 1200 Suspend: 1800 Off: 2400 DPMS is Disabled Jason Taylor NASA/GSFC Code 661

I have verified this on several machines in the test lab. The xset c [on or 100] does not work on all test machines as described by the man pages. It did not want to work with 5.2 either.

this is an unimplemented feature in XFree86. However, they could implement it at any time. I suggest you take up a bug report with the XFree86 team regarding their manual page, or ask them to implement the feature.
