#StackBounty: #gnome #18.04 #keyboard #xorg Keyboard repeat/delay is reset occasionally in Ubuntu 18.04

Bounty: 50

My keyboard repeat & delay settings are occasionaly reverted to slow (apparently default) values under Xorg in Ubuntu 18.04.

In this situation, the actual values (as obtained by xset q) are

auto repeat delay:  500    repeat rate:  30

whereas gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.keyboard delay returns:

uint32 250

If I afterwards run gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.keyboard delay 250, the keyboard delay / repeat settings are correctly set (xset q then returns auto repeat delay: 250).

There seem to be several triggers for the behavior, one reproducibly being a suspend & wakeup cycle; I wasn’t able to reproduce others yet.

My system is a rather freshly installed Ubuntu 18.04 on an A10-5800K with an A78M-E35 board in BIOS (non EFI) mode.

Any hints would be highly appreciated.
