I remapped my "Control_R" key to "Prior" with:
xmodmap -e "keycode 105 = Prior"
I then set autorepeat "on" for the remapped key:
When I check the function of the newly remapped key with "xev", it shows up as "Prior" and the autorepeat function looks to be working. However, when I try to use the autorepeat on the new "Prior" key when in an application, I find my success to be hit-and-miss. For example, the autorepeat function works in Thunar, Firefox, and Evince, but does not work while using nano, OpenOffice Write, or Adobe Reader.
What can I do to get this newly remapped key to autorepeat for all apps?
I'm using Debian Squeeze.
