KEYBOARD(1)							   KEYBOARD(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     keyboard -	customization panel for	setting	keyclick and key repeat

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     keyboard allows users to set four keyboard	parameters: key	click sounds
     (on or off), key repeat (whether or not holding down a key	causes a
     character to repeat), repeat speed	(rate at which a depressed key will
     repeat characters), and repeat delay (amount of time to pass before a
     depressed key begins repeating characters).

     The panel can be launched from the	toolchest (Desktop > Customize >
     Keyboard) or from a Unix shell command line.  Like	most other
     customization panels, the desktop panel has the ``runonce'' feature,
     meaning only one instance of the application will run at one time.
     Attempting	to launch the application a second time	will have the effect
     of	deiconifying the application window or popping it to the top on	the
     current desk.

     For more information about	the entire IRIX	Interactive Desktop
     environment and about the XUSERFILESEARCHPATH environment variable, see
     the IID(1)	man page.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]


     The keyboard panel	does not read from any files.  Keyboard	settings
     selected by the user are changed into xset	commands and written into the
     file $HOME/.desktop-<hostname>/panelsession where <hostname> is the
     result of running the hostname(1) command.	 When the user logs in,
     /usr/lib/X11/xdm/Xsession.dt executes and reads these settings.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     xset(1), IID(1), dtSounds(1), hostname(1)

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

     Key Click can be set not only on the keyboard panel but also on the
     dtSounds panel.  The Key Click checkbox last clicked will have its
     setting honored and will be reflected in both panels the next time
     they're launched.
