DESCRIPTION

       keyboard  is  an  Xorg input driver for keyboards.  The driver supports
       the standard OS-provided keyboard interface.

       The keyboard driver functions as a keyboard input device,  and  may  be
       used as the X server’s core keyboard.

       This  driver  is  built-in to the core X server, and multiple instances
       are not supported.   A loadable  driver,  kbd,  is  available,  and  is
       planned  to replace the keyboard driver in a future release of the Xorg
       server.

CONFIGURATION DETAILS

       Please refer to xorg.conf(5x) for general configuration details and for
       options  that  can  be  used with all input drivers.  This section only
       covers configuration details specific to this driver.

       The following driver Options are supported:

       Option "Protocol" "string"
              Specify the keyboard protocol.  Valid protocol types include:

                   Standard, Xqueue.

              Not all protocols are  supported  on  all  platforms.   Default:
              "Standard".

       Option "AutoRepeat" "delay rate"
              sets  the  auto  repeat behaviour for the keyboard.  This is not
              implemented on all platforms.  delay is the time in milliseconds
              before  a  key  starts repeating.  rate is the number of times a
              key repeats per second.  Default: "500 30".

       Option "XLeds" "ledlist"
              makes the keyboard  LEDs  specified  in  ledlist  available  for
              client  use  instead of their traditional function (Scroll Lock,
              Caps Lock and Num Lock).  The numbers in the  list  are  in  the
              range 1 to 3.  Default: empty list.

       Option "XkbDisable" "boolean"
              disable/enable  the  XKEYBOARD  extension.  The -kb command line
              option overrides this  config  file  option.   Default:  XKB  is
              enabled.

              NOTE: This option should be specified in the ServerFlags section
              rather than here.  It’s use here is deprecated.

       Option "XkbRules" "rules"
              specifies which XKB rules  file  to  use  for  interpreting  the
              XkbModel,   XkbLayout,   XkbVariant,  and  XkbOptions  settings.
              Default: "xorg"  for  most  platforms,  but  "xfree98"  for  the
              Japanese PC-98 platforms.

       Option "XkbModel" "modelname"
              specifies  the  XKB  keyboard  model name.  Default: "pc105" for
              most platforms, but "pc98" for the Japanese PC-98 platforms.

       Option "XkbLayout" "layoutname"
              specifies the XKB keyboard layout name.   This  is  usually  the
              country  or  language  type  of the keyboard.  Default: "us" for
              most platforms, but "nec/jp" for the Japanese PC-98 platforms.

       Option "XkbVariant" "variants"
              specifies the XKB keyboard variant  components.   These  can  be
              used  to enhance the keyboard layout details.  Default: not set.

       Option "XkbOptions" "options"
              specifies the XKB keyboard option components.  These can be used
              to enhance the keyboard behaviour.  Default: not set.

       Some other XKB-related options are available, but they are incompatible
       with the ones listed above and are not recommended,  so  they  are  not
       documented here.
