Keyboard repeat

I’m not kidding: Apple disabled keyboard repeat for all keys but cursors in MacOS X 10.7 (Lion) for most apps (e.g. not in Terminal).

What should you do if you have to write something like: “Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, this sucks!” Well, you could type ‘a’ a dozen times. Or you type:

defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false

(Note: This works for apps started afterwards, only)

Thanks to wikiHow for making the defaults command appear on my Google search.
