Okay then; use xset(1) (somewhere in your xinitrc or equivalent)...
r The r option controls the autorepeat. If a preceding dash or
the 'off' flag is used, autorepeat will be disabled. If no
parameters or the 'on' flag is used, autorepeat will be
enabled. If a specific keycode is specified as a parameter,
autorepeat for that keycode is enabled or disabled. If the
server supports the XFree86-Misc extension, or the XKB exten-
sion, then a parameter of 'rate' is accepted and should be fol-
lowed by zero, one or two numeric values. The first specifies
the delay before autorepeat starts and the second specifies the
repeat rate. In the case that the server supports the XKB
extension, the delay is the number of milliseconds before
autorepeat starts, and the rate is the number of repeats per
second. If the rate or delay is not given, it will be set to
the default value.
...so delay of 350 ms & 30 repeats/s, for all the keys, will be set as...
xset r rate 350 30
