I would like to decrease the keyboard repeat delay, and if possible also to slightly increase the keyboard repeat rate.

How can I accomplish this - I doesn't find anything in the settings ?

I'm not sure I understand the settings you are referring to. Can you link to how you accomplish this under another desktop other than Moksha?
