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 sup-
       port.

       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
