Description Anze Zagar 2008-05-31 17:43:03 EDT
Description of problem:
Delay and Speed setting of 'Repeat Keys' in gnome-keyboard-preferences does not
preserve after restart of fedora.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change settings for Delay and Speed of 'Repeat Keys' in
gnome-keyboard-properties [make a significant change, so that the difference is
2. Restart fedora
3. Open gedit and hold some key.

Actual results:
Keyboard 'repeat keys' speed and delay are reset to fedora defaults although
gnome-keyboard-properties is showing modified values. As a workaround, I can
change one of these settings just slightly so that they get reloaded.

Expected results:
Modified keyboard 'repeat keys' property values should be used.

You can try this one: add to the InputDevice section in /etc/X11/xorg.conf an entry for "AutoRepeat":
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "kbd"
        Option      "XkbModel" "pc105"
        Option      "XkbLayout" "us"
        Option "AutoRepeat" "250 40"

This looks similar to bug 474758, but for keyboards. Ray, what do you think?

Anze, could you check whether the same problem happens when unplugging/replugging the keyboard (or a keyboard if you're doing this on a laptop)?

Actually, I switched to Ubuntu a few months ago, so I can no longer provide you with any feedback on this.
