I installed Ubuntu 11.10 last day, but keyboard is annoying me . it doesn't allow two same character type after each other, like "allow", first 'l' is alright but for typing second 'l' i have to wait a sec and press again.

its stupid, why they make it like this ?

Make sure, that you disabled either Sticky or Slow Keys under "Accessibility menu" and it should work!! Please let us know if that solved your problem!
