DESCRIPTION

     keyboard is an XFree86 input driver for keyboards.  The
     driver supports the standard OS-provided keyboard interface.
     This driver is currently built-in to the core X server.

     The keyboard driver functions as a keyboard input device,
     and may be used as the X server's core keyboard.  This
     driver is currently built-in to the core X server, and mul-
     tiple instances are not yet supported.

CONFIGURATION DETAILS

     Please refer to XF86Config(5) 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 repeat-
            ing. rate is the number of times a key repeats per
            second.  Default: "500 30".

     Option "XLeds" "ledlist"
            makes the keyboard LEDs specified in ledlist avail-
            able 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 com-
            mand line option overrides this config file option.
            Default: XKB is enabled.

            NOTE: This option should be specified in the Server-
            Flags section rather than here.  It's use here is
            deprecated.

     Option "XkbRules" "rules"
            specifies which XKB rules file to use for interpret-
            ing the XkbModel, XkbLayout, XkbVariant, and XkbOp-
            tions settings.  Default: "xfree86" for most plat-
            forms, but "xfree98" for the Japanese PC-98 plat-
            forms.

     Option "XkbModel" "modelname"
            specifies the XKB keyboard model name.  Default:
            "pc101" for most platforms, but "pc98" for the
            Japanese PC-98 platforms, and "pc101_sol8x86" for
            Solaris 8 on x86.

     Option "XkbLayout" "layoutname"
            specifies the XKB keyboard layout name.  This is usu-
            ally 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 recom-
     mended, so they are not documented here.
