In testing it I had one issue with florence : just typing in edit areas or text editors was fine.
When uploading both modules I used florence's ctrl key to select both modules, but the file dialogue box would not accept clicking the Open button nor did it work clicking florence's "Enter" key. I had to use the add files for upload twice to get both uploaded at the same time.
Maybe it was a florence but, maybe I did a mistake since it was my first time ever using florence.

In case your system lacks libgstreamer-1_0:
libgstreamer-1_0-0-1.18.0-1.1.x86_64.xzm (684 kB)
Code: Select all

Even the "hardware zoom" - alt key and mouse scroll wheel on the desktop - works via florence!Rava wrote: ↑14 Apr 2020, 14:45To get it, first wait 15 seconds "Dein Download wird jetzt vorbereitet." (Your download is being prepared)

The version is for Porteus using the main GNU C library glibc_2.29 . If your Porteus has a different version as base this florence version will fail.

GNU C library, it is the main library all C compiled programs in the system use.
If you would change that, all programs that use external C libraries (which are almost all) would break, meaning: your system would fail.
You have to find a florence version that was compiled for 2.27. There is no workaround.
P.S. One could abuse florence to create screenshot art by having layers of florence layers ad infinitum like so
or use it for tutorial screenshots signaling a needed user text input.
The main reason would be a fix for a broken keyboard or use porteus on a tablet PC.
Fun fact: when you have florence running but use a physical keyboard - on which you are able to type much more quickly - florence still highlights the currently pressed key. There is a use for making videos for that.
I forgot to add the following info, cause it is just too absurd to be possible,I still add the info for novice users:
You cannot change to the Virtual Consoles (VT) and expect florence still working. The Virtual Keyboard program runs under X, and displays itself using X. It cannot access what you do in the VT; while it is possible to send text to a VT or capte what is going on in a VT (I gave details on both in my Ravas Coding Goodies threads) all that my code is doing is accessing the VTs from a xterm. And only the capture script is mine, the C code for putting text into the VT from an xterm is by some unknown source since I forgot to save the URL I got it from.
While it is possible to send text (and in a way; keyboard strokes) to a VT - both is from X to VT, or get info from the VT into X - you cannot create a Virtual Keyboard since it not works the other way round.
Cave! At times it either did crash, or I pressed a button that makes it "keep alternating keys pressed and exit florence", either way, once I ended in a situation where florence told the system the Shift key was pressed, and even going to the physical keyboard and pressing Shift several times, or pressing CapsLock to switch it on and off, I was unable to access the XFCE main menu: Also I had Shift activated prior florence exiting, now the Control key was activated, and only the menu to alter the panel came when I wanted to access the main menu. So I had to start florence via terminal (that I had open already) and by doing so I was finally able to get the system state back to normal.
