Finally someone :D

I’d love to have a debian package of this.

And a little request: add the 102nd button (the one between z and lshift, very common in Europe).

This is the initial version. I'm preparing the option for the numeric pad and also a special button function to enter user specified keycode

 change layout?

 
 by chandraiitk on: Apr 10 2007
 
Score 50%

it seems to be very nice app but does it have any option to change the layout depending on locale i.e. Japanese keyboard's layout use to be different than that of US-english layout.

If it is possible, how about adding this feature in it?! I think this would add a great value to this app.

Thanks!!

Hi there,

keyboard layout is changed via KDE keyboard layout tool.
Keys on Kvkbd send corresponding keycodes as if they were typed on the real keyboard.
Hope this will help !

Ah, I think Japanese keyboards also come with extra keys (in the area of Alt and AltGr), that's probably what the user meant. I don't know much about those boards though — Wikipedia might be of more help.

 JP special keys

Ok I can understand, I had a look at japanese keyboard at wikipedia. I'll be gladd to add them.
So if you can send me the corresponding keycodes - xev tool dumps all possible keys - I can add them.
But honestly I think we all should use the keyboard layout tool to change input style. Why do we need more keys?

Well, I know that in Korean there’s a Hangeul/Hanja key which is a switch between the Korean alphabet and the borrowed Chinese characters (which they rarely, but do use). I have a wild guess that it wouldn’t be nice for them to have to install a Chinese input method just to be able to write the classic form of names, not to mention said characters are pronounced differently in the two languages.

Japanese keyboards come with a full vs. half-width key, but I too don’t see the point why they couldn’t just, so to say, Alt-Shift over to the American layout if they so want to type Latin characters. And I think they do have some hiragana vs. katakana shift too? Not quite sure.

there use to be a special key to shift between Japaneses-input and Latin-input. Also, if switched into the Japaneses-input mode, then another key automatically gets activated which allows one to shift between hiragana-katakana-romaji (romaji chars are English alphabets).

These are the two mostly used keys to handle Japaneses chars. If they want to change the hiragana into kanji, they use space-key or sometimes another special key.

Well, also, they have special key for each Japaneses char. however, they seldom use this feature. what is do is, they type English chars corresponding to the pronunciation and that automatically converts into the Japaneses char.
e.g. if they want to the japanese char "ka", they enter "k" and "a" and this automatically converts into the japanese char "ka". Although, as I said before, they have special key to enter the Japanese char "ka" directly (after changing the input mode). However, very very few people use such direct input.

So, what would be sufficient is to provide a special key to shift between Latin-input and Japanese-input, and also a key to change between Hiragana, Katakana, and Romaji. Also, a special key to change between full-width and ha;f-width char...i mean, in total, 3 special keys would be sufficient.

Hi,

I have made an ebuild for Gentoo users:

Cheers,

PS: It would be nice if the characters on the virtual keyboard would be changed to the right characters when I change the localisation of the keyboard (e.g. US->CZ). Also the arrows an numeric pad would be nice.

Thanks for the implementation of the keyboard layout switching. I have found that when I click on SHIFT button, the Czech characters have been changed to uppercase characters, but the rest of keys are still lowercase characters. It would be nice if you will change this behaviour in next version.

The numeric pad and the arrows are still missing. It would be nice to have complete virtual keyboard.

Thank you very much for your very good job. Please keep working on this useful project.

Cheers,
Jiri

An other note. It would be nice if I click first time on the icon of the kvkbd to it shows the application and if I click second time on the icon to it hidden the application. It's just a detail, but it would be useful.

Thanks for all the changes. Kvkbd works now very well for me.

1) Now it would be nice to have DCOP interface. Then we could show/hide kvkbd by special button on a tablet by ACPI. Something like: "dcop kvkbd hide" or "dcop kvkbd show".

2) Numeric pad and the arrows keys would be nice.

3) Also snapping of kvkbd application to the borders of the screen would be nice.

4) Last thing could be resizing of kvkbd over screen to fill up the screen vertically.

Its great, i added it to my personal love list of kde apps.

There is one possible future feature, and this would be to be able to use a "voice" input method instead of the mouse input method.

This way one could get a simple KDE app to type letter-per-letter.

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.
