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  spawn-
       ing 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
