NAME

       keyboard-request - event signalling console press of Alt-UpArrow

SYNOPSIS

       keyboard-request [ENV]...

DESCRIPTION

       The  keyboard-request  event is generated by the Upstart init(8) daemon
       when the keyboard request key combination  (typically  Alt-UpArrow)  is
       pressed on the console.

       The  support  for  this  event  depends  on  your kernel configuration.
       Suggested use for this event includes spawning a new login console when
       pressed, or for secure attention key support.

       This event is not handled in the default Upstart configuration.

EXAMPLE

       A task to be run on the keyboard request might use:

              start on keyboard-request
