Thanks, you saved half of my day already.

First, I was misguided by the label " ENABLE" in the => Settings,=> System, Local Display section.
I switched it to show "Disable" now, rebooted, and the keyboard apperas when pointing to the text-field "search" for example. That part works perfectly.

Second, when going to Chrome, the virtual keyboard doesn't appear when pointiing to a text-field.

Can you please save the second half of my day?



Thank you very much so far.

No, I cannot :-D

The reason is: when you are on Chrome on ytour PC there is no need for a virtual keyboard, you can use the physical one, right?
Moode performs a check, and if it is running on the Chrome in the PI, then enables the keyboard, otherwise it doesn't.

There is a way to enable it, though, but is for developing purposes only; main thing being: on a browser other than the local PI one, you don't need the OSK.


Cheers, Al.

P.S.
@Tim Curtis
The way we enable the OSK was somehow misleading for me as well... shouldn't it be more consistent with a ON/OFF sliding swich?

I'll update the control for upcoming 8.2.3

Tonights WIP refactoring commit contains the update :-)

@Tim Curtis :

When I listen to JazzGroove for example, I often want to find out more about the running title or an artist.
That's the reason for my idea.

To install a popup keyboard for Chromium itself do the following and then turn off the On-screen keyboard in System config.

- Connect a keyboard
- Ctrl-t to open a new Chromium tab
- Settings
- Extensions
- Chrome Web Store
- Search for "xontab"
- Install the xontab virtual keyboard
- Close the tab
- Remove keyboard
- Reboot

I haven't tested the steps but something like the above should work.

Tim, thanks for your help.

Will try the steps decribed by you asap.


Would be nice if such things would be mentioned in the docs.

Even though as @Nutul mentioned it's really a Chrome thing, if the procedure works I can add it to the Setup Guide .
