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 support.

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
