Description:

This is the first virtual keyboard for plasma. I made it for everyone who is using a touchscreen or plans to use one.

This is now part of the kdeplasma-addons package for KDE 4.4.

PLEASE PROVIDE ME WITH FEEDBACK!

There are some requirements for compiling. Check out the following from the readme.

PLEASE REPORT BUGS IN THE COMMENTS

REQUIREMENTS:
- You need a working GNU Compiler toolchain.
- Cmake
- KDE Headers files (kde development packages)
- Xlib Header files (X develpment packages)
- XTest Extension Header files (X develpment packages)
- QT Header files (QT development packages)


HOW TO INSTALL

In the main directory run
- cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
- make
- make install/strip (as root or: sudo make install/strip )


KNOWN ISSUES

KNOWN ISSUES

- Plasmaboard does only (!) work when you place it in the panel. You can place it on the desktop but clicking on its buttons will do nothing

- When pressing "Alt Gr" the symbols on the keyboard do not adapt. This is an issue with the underlying X-Function, which seems
only to do mapping for the shift key correctly. No known solution yet. Despite of that AltGr works as expected

- When changing the xkb-modmap, plasmaboard does not adapt automatically. You need to force the relabeling of the keys. Press "Shift" for example

- Backspace key does not work in eclipse. Don't know why. If you find other applications in which plasmaboard doesn't work as expected, please report




Changelog:


1.0:
This is the version of plasmaboard shipped with KDE 4.5.0 plus a bugfix. I provide it here for everyone still using KDE 4.4.

Advantages over the 4.4 version are quite big. Read here:
http://btux1984.wordpress.com/2010/04/28/kdes-onscreen-keyboard/

0.91:
- Fixed building bug

0.9:
- WARNING: This is not compatible with KDE 4.2 anymore!
- Will be part of KDE 4.4. kdeplasma-addons
- Improved labeling of keys and its performance
- Added transparency to key notifications
- Added tooltip for the keyboard
- Enhanced scaling behaviour inside of a plasma panel

0.8:
- There is now a text label on the keyboard for switching between the basic and the extended layout. I think it is necessary that you can switch between them without using the context menu. However - if you have a bette idea how to provide this switching functionality please let me know.

0.7:
- Font size on buttons is now scaled with the size of the keyboard
- That means the key label will always fit onto the keys (minus some bad translations)
- the popup showing the last pressed key is working far better now

0.6:
- Much code cleanup
- Fixed bug concerning the switch between layouts
- Shows the last pressed key in a tooltip

Added the patch for kdelibs, that need to be applied for getting plasmaboard working on KDE 4.2.3/4.2.4 . Perhaps some package mantainers can add it to their packages?

0.51:
- Fix for plasmaboard loosing focus when opened. This needs a patch for KDE which is NOT in the vanilla 4.2.4 packages. Hope to get some package maintainers patching their distro packages. It does work on coming KDE 4.3 releases, RC1 for example.
- Added missing gpl stuff for packaging
- nothing else, sorry, no time

0.5:
- Clicking on keys like Control, Alt or Meta deactivates them now
- Closing the keyboard clears all pressed function keys
- Extended mode now provides a keyboard

0.4.2:
Bugfix. Arrows on keys should be visible with every correct plasma theme now.

0.4.1
Just a small build-fix. If 0.4 it built for you, you don't need it.
0.4 still has a problem with unreadable labels on some keys. That's a problem with some plasma-themes I still have to investigate. In glassified and aya it works.

0.4:
Enter, Tab, Shift, Caps, Backspace and ArrowKeys now have arrows painted on instead of a text label

0.3:
Plasmaboard does now have all keys you might need. You can switch to the old basic layout via the conextmenu.

0.2:
Many changes in the code. But you will notice the following enhancements:
- keyboard is now fully scalable in all directions
- symbols are repeated if you keep the key pressed
- Changed WIN-label to META
- Most "known issues" are gone

0.1.1: Bugfix. Function keys work now.
(Enter, Backspace and so on didn't work in 0.1. Uh, that's painful). Changed labeling of Control and Enter-Key

0.1: Initial version

Hi,

As Kvkdb makes me sick, I tried to compile your plasmoid, but I've got this error,


:~/plasmaboard-1.0$ cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-2.8/Modules/FindKDE4.cmake:98 (MESSAGE):

CMake Warning (dev) in CMakeLists.txt:

I found something on the web so I uninstalled kdelibs4-dev for puting in place of kdelibs5-dev.

Now the error has been changed by this one :

CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND.
Please set them or make sure they are set and tested correctly in the CMake files:
X11_XTest_LIB (ADVANCED)
linked by target "plasma_applet_plasmaboard" in directory /home/mdubois/plasmaboard-1.0

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!


Thanks for your help

 Layout switching

 
 by Magdalits on: Apr 8 2011
 
Score 50%

Hello! I've installed your widget and I like it, but there's some proplems with layouts (ru and us). When there's only russian or only english layout - it's okay, all works perfectly. But when I have both layouts, there are problems:

1. When XkbLayout is set to "us, ru", us layout works fine. Russian layout, however, has some keys missing (1, 2, 5, 6, 7, - and =): this buttons are blanc and pressing them switches layout back to us. Pressing shift also switches layout to us.

2. When XkbLayout is set to "ru, us" (ru first), both layouts has all their keys and look normal, but pressing shift still switches layout to us (not to default ru). Afterwards layout switching it bugging for a while, and I can't go back to ru until I reopen widget.

I would be grateful, if you would fix this bug, because your board is arguably the best virtual keyboard implementation on Linux (not only for KDE), and I really like to use it. Or, may be, there's a shamanistic trick (like changing layouts order), that could "fix" it? That would be enough =)

I'm running Arch Linux on 2.6.38.2 kernel. Sorry for poor english.

 Bug with non-QWERTY layouts

 
 by AGuiFr on: May 2 2011
 
Score 50%

Hi,

Thanks for your work on Plasmaboard. It is very useful. However, using an AZERTY layout (French layout), I also have a bug.

When it is shown for the first time, everything is alright, I have the correct layout (first letter: a). However, although the AZERTY layout is displayed, this is in fact a QWERTY layout (if I type on "a", "q" is inputted). Using the shift button (either on Plasmaboard or on the real keyboard), the AZERTY layout is replaced by a QWERTY layout. When I release shift, the QWERTY layout stays.

Reading the comments above, it seems that there are issues with all the non-QWERTY layouts. Could you do something about it?

See the three images below to better understand:

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
