I vaguely recall being able to set the keyboard repeat speed in either titchy or Angstom. It is too fast for my taste in debian; I'd like to slow it down. Holding a key down even a small fraction of a second (much faster than on my desktop) causes the key to repeat. How do you do that?

kdrive doesn't seem to support change of the repeat rate of key. Only I could find the command to turn off key repeat.
In console: setterm -repeat off
in X: xset -r

some other options would be: using the xorg server (http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=26362 http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=25433) adding xkb to kdrive (http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=26345) or setting it in the kernel (?)

turning autorepeat off completely is better than nothing but it's annoying to lose autorepeat for space delete return and the cursor keys

attached is my script to turn off autorepeat for normal characters but have it on for editing characters
