I just opened my new Retina Display MacBook Pro and everything worked fine, but when I tried to go into System Preferences to make the key repeat speed faster, none of the keys repeated, not even numbers and symbols.
If I type
defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false into terminal, it works, but it disables the accented key popup when holding down keys such as A and E, which I use often.
This worked perfectly on my old 2009 MacBook Pro that was running 10.7.4. I have restarted this computer and reset the key repeat speed, but have still had no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
