Description Larry Troan 2003-02-04 17:02:39 UTC
Type /usr/sbin/kbdrate in X windows causes continuous carriage returns. This affects everything is X, as it does not stop when the terminal is closed. Anything subsequently highlighted by the mouse will be continuously selected, since the carriage returns do not stop until X is restarted Note: If the same /usr/sbin/kbdrate is executed in ttys then it works fine giving the keyboard repeat rate and delay time. ---------- Action by: jhull Issue Registered ISSUE TRACKER 14902, opened as sev 2.

Adrian, Any update on this?
Comment 2 Eido Inoue 2003-08-01 21:35:23 UTC
This appears fixed with the 1.20.1 in rawhide
Comment 3 Gary Lerhaupt 2004-05-24 21:16:44 UTC
Where can version 1.20 be found? 1.12 is in FC2 and it still has this problem. Reopening for clarification.
Comment 4 Eido Inoue 2004-10-28 18:43:03 UTC
In current releaes, carriage returns are emmitted (to measure the rate), but after about 10 of them kbdrate properly reports the rate. kbdrate without any arguments attempts to send sequences that reset the rate and other things-- giving the side effect of the carriage returns. These sequences have no effect in an X window environment, and end up appearing as carriage returns. As the bugzilla was for "continuous carriage returns", closing the bug as this is solved in the supported releases.
