Enable Key Repeat in Lion

If it’s been killing you like it’s been killing me and you want to enable key repeat in Lion just type the following in the command line:

defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false

I couldn’t put up with it any longer.

I also added this user default to my list in a previous post: Mac OS X User Defaults. It contains a pretty thorough list of suggested and commonly sought changes.

Comments, questions and feedback welcome.
