Description Ryan Thompson 2009-12-15 00:37:06 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.3.4)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Archlinux Packages

I need some special autorepeat settings for my laptop (specifically, I need to selectively disable autorepeat for certain keys). I can set these, but then KDE clobbers them because I cannot stop it from setting autorepeat either on or off.

In the long run, I suppose it would be nice to have an "Advanced" button where I can do my selective disabling right within SystemSettings, but for now, I'd like to set things up with a script and then have KDE not clobber the settings.

I have stopped needing this feature since I reported this, but it still would be a nice thing to have.
