keyboard problem

Hi there,

i was having trouble with my keyboard. The problem is that if i have the keyboard depressed, it only performs the action once.
eg. press backspace and hold - only deletes one character.
This is annoying for me
anyone with solutions?

Your Q does'nt really give alot of information, which distro-version do you use, are you using gnome or kde or... theres a long list. Is the problem particular to a particular app? etc etc.

Try running this search in google
repeat time linux
You'll find lot of really good info
