0.4.8 - dcop scripting fixes, now implements show, hide and state functions. Usage 'dcop kvkbd kvkbd' to see all functions. 'dcop kvkbd kvkbd "show()"' to show the widget explicitly. Fix to correctly save and restore the visibility state of the keyboard widget.

0.4.7 - new button to popup the dockmenu, helping users without right click. Store/Restore position of the keyboard on screen.

 This is great!

I have been using xvkbd and love it but you can't minimize the thing. With kvkbd I can't get the fonts to change when I right click the icon in the the task bar, well I can change in the font window but changes don't take effect. I keep the keyboard small 340 X 110 so I need the keys and letters about the same size.
Also I have a .xvkbd file that has macros so like shift F3 it types "Alvin" can you do that in kvkbd?
How's using it at kdm login coming?
Great job overall.
Alvin

Oh and can you click drag the different corners of the keys to shift alt ctrl and so on?

Hi, there

As there is Auto-Font size functionality you have to disable it first and then adjust font size from the font menu.

If Auto-Font size is enabled only the font name is accepted from the font menu

About the macros I think it will be possible to do so in future version

Regards,
Todor

OK thanks, that did it! The macros (or hay how about a slide out macro panel) and auto shift alt ctrl by dragging off the key corner would be great.
Thanks

Hi there,
About macros panel fine, but dragging keys could be a question of usability, for example when keyboard is re-sized to its minimum size.

it would be grat to have a "fixed position" option for the dock applet and the keyboard itself, making it easier to use with a wiimote :)

 autostart

 
 by nxt on: Oct 26 2007
 
Score 50%

Great software, I tried OnBoard and xvkbd and this is my choice of preference! I have slight problem locating the kvkbd autostart script in KDE though.. I start the kvkbd with KDM, but another instance is initiated when I login to the system. Therefore I need to delete the second launcher from the system. Thanks for all tips and ideas.

I've updated some code and all seems to work fine using 0.4.8 version.
dcop kvkbd kvkbd to see list of all functions
dcop kvkbd kvkbd "show()" to show the keyboard
dcop kvkbd kvkbd "hide()" to hide the keyboard
dcop kvkbd kvkbd "state()" returns the current visibitlity state as "visible" or "hidden"

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.
