Holding a key down in game repeats as if I'm typing instead of holding

When I hold a key in a game, the key is not held. Instead, it holds for a moment and then stops and repeats - the behavior you expect to see when typing.

How can I create an AppImage of Wine?
td flag

So I want to package WINE as an AppImage using appimage-builder.

First, I wonder if someone already did this, and yes, here, but it's outdated. I want to make one myself.

Next, I look on the Github page above for how to do this, but it requires PlayOnLinux to have up-to-date stuff, which it does not have.

After that, I looked at the appimage-builder documentation, and I got this.
