NAME
       kbd - Keyboard input driver

SYNOPSIS
       Section "InputDevice"
	 Identifier "idevname"
	 Driver "kbd"
	 ...
       EndSection

DESCRIPTION
       kbd  is	an  XFree86 input driver for keyboards.  The driver supports the standard OS-pro-
       vided keyboard interface, but these are currently only available to this driver module for
       Linux  and  BSD.  This driver is experimental, but will soon replace the built-in keyboard
       driver.

       The kbd driver functions as a keyboard input device, and may be used  as  the  X  server's
       core keyboard.

CONFIGURATION DETAILS
       Please  refer to XF86Config(5x) 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 "Device" "string"
	      Specify  the  keyboard  device.	Default:  the OS's default console keyboard input
	      source.

       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 repeating.  rate
	      is the number of times a key repeats per second.	Default: "500 30".

       Option "XLeds" "ledlist"
	      makes the keyboard LEDs specified in ledlist available 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 "XkbRules" "rules"
	      specifies which XKB rules file to use for  interpreting  the  XkbModel,  XkbLayout,
	      XkbVariant,  and	XkbOptions  settings.  Default: "xfree86" for most platforms, but
	      "xfree98" for the Japanese PC-98 platforms.

       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 usually the country or language
	      type of the keyboard.  Default: "us" for most platforms, but "nec/jp" for the Japa-
	      nese 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 recommended, so they are not documented here.
