I own a logitech K400r and it I can't seem to get any key to repeat when I hold it down. I'm not sure what happened, but I was working on trying fix a different problem involving multiple windows.
Here is the output of: xset -q

You have "auto repeat: off"
Find out the usage of xset eg:
man xset | grep repeat
(We keep saying to you to read the instructions! )
(damo, don't give up! I cane be taught!!!!_)
damo, I did like you said and I didn't see the answer, but I kept reading the man page. Suddenly it clicked I could take what the man page was talking about and r with xset.
I might of had a thought today! Thank you!
so is this solved now?
for what it's worth, you have to reapply those settings everytime you login, or maybe there's a way to do it through ~/.Xresources...
i have this in my ~/.xinitrc (i like it speedy):
xset r rate 350 50
^ In CrunchBang (and BunsenLabs) the keyboard repeat is set in ~/.config/openbox/autostart
^ thanks for pointing that out.
i still think it should be possible to configure it via .Xresources, or maybe even some file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d...
i just never got around to figuring it out, so every xset call slows my login down by 10µs...
Oh I see what happen now. :8
I was trying to keep multiple windows from popping up when I used hotkeys. I had adjusted the ~/.config/openbox/autostart to "r off" but it didn't seem to change anything. When I restarted it must of turned it off and I didn't realize it. Really dumb mistake on my part sorry, but thanks for all the help.

Yes, adding it to .Xresources would also work as that is parsed during startup automatically by BunsenLabs.
