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
