Chrome on Screen Keyboard

Post#1 by MarkymarkF » 15 Feb 2017, 11:40


I've manged to get exactly what we want working on a standalone touch screen pc, but would like to enable an on screen keyboard as there isn't one attached to the PC. I've had a look around the forums and there doesn't seem to be a solution (that's easy for a newbie like me to follow) I just need users to be able to finger click in a text box and for an on screen keyboard to open. We're using Chrome in the porteus build.

Would someone be able to provide an idiots guide :Search: to enabling the keyboard please?

Thanks in anticipation!
