NAMEkeyboard-request - event signalling console press of Alt-UpArrow
DESCRIPTIONThe 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.
EXAMPLEA task to be run on the keyboard request might use: start on keyboard-request
