Bug#446435: kde: holding down a key does not make the key repeat in KDE
(I'm sorry for not knowing which KDE component is responsible for this particular problem. Feel free to reassign. Thanks.)
Since a few days, holding a key down does not make the key repeat. I hadn't noticed, until I tried to scroll down in Firefox with the arrow keys. The page only scrolls down one unit, even if you keep the key down. I then tried some other programs (e.g. konsole), and none of the keys repeat, either arrows or normal letters.
Did I accidently turn on some accessibility function I don't know about, or is this a new and known problem?
Thanks for any clues,
PS: I've been bitten by the X keyboard leds bug too (freedesktop #12434). Perhaps related?
