I know I can change keyboard autorepeat settings with
xset r rate <delay> <rate>.
Can anyone tell me the default values on Ubuntu? I've checked the man page and tried googling, to no avail.
You can display current settings with
where among other useful information one can find:
Keyboard Control: auto repeat: on ... auto repeat delay: 660 repeat rate: 25 ...
Delay is given in milliseconds and rate is the number of repeats per second.
