key-repeat on/off broken for individual keys

key-repeat on/off broken for individual keys

Post by Rand Bamber » Tue, 09 Nov 1999 04:00:00



I'm running a stock RedHat 6.0/x86 with Enlightenment .15.5.
Try as I might, I cannot get "xset -r <keycode>" to work. I can
globally enable/disable key-repeat using "xset r on" and "xset r
off", but setting individual keycodes (obtained from "xmodmap -pke")
has no effect.

Actually, I can tell that *something* is happening, by
examining the results of "xset -q" before and after:

$ xset -q
Keyboard Control:
  auto repeat:  on    key click percent:  0    LED mask:  00000000
auto repeat delay:  500    repeat rate:  5
  auto repeating keys:  00ffffffdffffbbf
                        fa9fffffffdffdff
                        7f00000000000000
                        0000000000000000

$ xmodmap -pke | while read foo key foo ; do xset -r $key ; done
$ xset -q
Keyboard Control:
  auto repeat:  on    key click percent:  0    LED mask:  00000000
auto repeat delay:  500    repeat rate:  5
  auto repeating keys:  0000000000000000
                        0000000000000000
                        0000000000000000
                        0000000000000000

All this, and the X-server seems to be completely ignoring
the auto_repeats key mask.  I've checked my BIOS; no luck.
I've even tried switching my keyboard (M$Natural) for a stock
Dell QuietKey; no luck.

Any ideas?  Is this an XFree86 problem?  A RedHat problem?
A Linux problem?  A hardware problem?  If anyone can shed
some light, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,
Rand.

1. Disabling key repeat on selected keys

I'm trying to configure my XFree86-3.1.2E-Mach64 X server to disable
key repeat on all the function keys.  Unfortunately, the command:
xset -r 67
doesn't seem to work.  I think it should disable key repeat on key
F1.  Is this a known problem with XFree86, is it specific to the
Mach64 server, or running on Linux 1.2.13?  I didn't see anything
about this in the XFree86 FAQ.

The command:
xset r off
does work, but doesn't do what I want.

Thanks.

Matthew
