initial version

You didn't say which Desktop Environment you're using, but I see options to set the delay for repeating keys in both the GNOME and Plasma Keyboard settings applets. The GNOME version doesn't display a time, but there is a slider to move between "short" and "long", and the KDE version offers the same slider but tells you the delay time in a box on the right.

I found both of these settings options by opening system settings, and selecting "Keyboard" from GNOME, and "Input Devices" on Plasma.
