Key Repeat speed in gnome settings is ignored when launched on wayland
Last modified: 2016-07-19 13:28:53 EDT
Description of problem:
Logging in to Gnome on Wayland, my key repeat settings are ignored.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to a Gnome wayland session
2. Change Repeat Key settings in Gnome settings
3. Test settings
The settings are ignored.
Settings take effect.
This is Xwayland bug. Xwayland does not implement key-repating at all
sent a patch to devel list to fix it
Thanks, I think the fix made it into Fedora 22. Key repeat settings are working for gnome-terminal. Unfortunately, it isn't working for some apps, like xterm. I've started using xterm over gnome-terminal because of a separate wayland+gnome issue:

Nope, the patch is still hanging on list, that's why it's not working with xterm. Gnome-terminal just started using pure wayland instead of Xwayland I think.
