KeyBoss - Version: 0.1.0
(2 Jul 2010)
KeyBoss is an Application + Service combination to give greater control over the keyboard and keyboard events. It currently allows you to change the repeat rate of the hard keyboard events, emulate keyboard events (used by Virtual Keyboard), and also gives KeyCaps type functionality. When enabled you can either hold a key for capital letter and/or doubletap a key for the key's symbol.
NOTE: You must install the Uinput Module package for the KeyCaps and emulation (for VKB) functionalities to work.
This is only the first attempt at it, but I hope to add more control and options. For instance KeyCaps control on a key-by-key basis. Also maybe keyboard "profiles" to allow quickly switching between languages for instance.
