http://homepage3.nifty.com/tsato/xvkbd/

Quote:
xvkbd is a virtual (graphical) keyboard program for X Window System which provides facility to enter characters onto other clients (softwares) by clicking on a keyboard displayed on the screen. This may be used for systems without a hardware keyboard such as kiosk terminals or handheld devices. This program also has facility to send characters specified as the command line option to another client.




It also needs the attached libXaw3d.so.8.pet &, possibly depending on your pupversion, libXp.so.6.

Run from the commandline by entering xvkbd

Sweet! I hope this works out. I plan on using it for a Digital picture frame I'm working on. Thanks. Cool

I will download and test in the A.M. and report back.

The keyboard installed ok, but when I tried it out nothing was transferred form the key selection to the search window in in the browser for example.

Am I missing something?

Just played around with it & i think you need to click the Focus button, then click where you want to enter text. Not sure whether divisionmd's original query, about it being always on top, is resolved or not?

Also, trying to use shift-key to select, say &, seems a bit dodgy.

Hi,
great. I need this for my Tablet PC.

How can it be started when browserlinux.com puplet
starts up ?

Can I put it somewhere into an autostart file ?

Many thanks in advance.

Regards, Stefan.

There should be a folder like /root/Startup where you could make a symlink or a starterscript.

or you could launch it from /root/.xinitrc. for that place

Code:
xvkbd &


at the end of the file just before

Code:
#exec $CURRENTWM


don't forget the & !

Hi,
when I installed it on
browserlinux.com pupplet
it was missing the
xlibXP.so.6 file
which can be gotten over here as pet to install:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=24516&search_id=1043930508

Then the dependancies are correct.

The problem I have,
how do I use this keyboard application...
Must the Focus key be pressed ?

Then when I just hover the mouse over the keys
without pressing, it already types the letters for
example in the firefox adress bar...
Hmm, when I don t press the Focus key,
it does not make anything, although I click
onto the keys...strange...

I'm re-installing it in TeenPup 2009 Legacy. Because it's only displaying the U.S. English QWERTY keyboard no matter what language I select. (it was installed by default on TeenPup)

Hello, installed the .pet into Puppy 4.3.1 and I can make the keyboard appear, but when I press Focus nothing happens even when I click into a document or just in general, the keys doesn't respond at all to the keyboard on screen.


Here is a screenshot of the error received:
