App recomendation xvkbd


#1

I was surprised to discover afaict that it looks like there is no virtual keyboard in the repo, surprising because there is a rapsberry pi base image, where there’s a fair chance you might need one…

I looked at a number of different ones, and I’m actually glad I had some issues with compiling florence on the pi as it made me have a proper look at xvkbd

there is a menu of settings but its well hidden in plain view!

there are numerous layouts and it can be used in conjunction with lightdm,


(Masato the Empty) #2

It is in void-packages, and it looks like they’d have it on that arch if it would cross compile., but it’s nocross due to some breakage or another (I’m looking at a local copy in a pretty recent pull from void-packages).

Looks like the fcitx IME is also not built for any ARM, and that’s also got virtual keyboards in several languages/layouts.

There used to be something for ibus as well, but that project (ibus-xkbc) looks quite dead…


#3

Security often demands a virtual kb. Tails Project dumped Florence for another one.


#4

compiles fine on the actual platform, but its some wierd imake build (you can’t call imake directly) but it builds fine on either platform, so it should cross ??
