On Screen Keyboard

Post#1 by JesseR » 31 May 2018, 19:30

I have looked around and most of the post I have found are old, I am also hoping there is a new and easier way to do it.
I am running 4.6.0 with firefox, with a touch screen monitor, the touch screen works great for the mouse, but is there a way to have an on screen keyboard pop up when needed? or have one on the screen at all times?

Thanks!

Are you using the kiosk version of Porteus? If so try posting in the kiosk section where you will be more likely to get help.

Hi Jesse,

Its enough that you install virtual keyboard addon on any Linux system in Firefox version below 57 (this must be legacy addon and not web-extension) then remaster the kiosk installation ISO and add this addon to following module and folder:

Code: Select all

003-settings.xzm/home/guest/.mozilla/firefox/c3pp43bg.default/extensions
remember to change ownership to guest:

Code: Select all

chown 1000:1000 addon.xpi
You may follow this doc in order to remaster the ISO:

in case of troubles please contact with builds@porteus-kiosk.org:

Thank you.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
