Ubuntu – Repeat key functionality doesn’t work

11.10keyboard

On logging into Oneiric, my repeat key functionality doesn't work. Holding in a key will not repeat. I can work around this by going into System Settings>>Keyboard and slightly adjusting the delay and/or speed and then the repeat keys will work for that session only.

Shutting down and restarting again breaks the repeat keys.

What can I do to fix this?

  • Go to system settings >> keyboard and make sure that repeat and speed are set correctly.

    when this doesn't work, it sometimes helps to disable repeat keys and enable it again.
