A nice virtual keyboard for KDE.
Have systray and dockwidget, resizable, with numeric/cursor pad layer.
Dynamic detection of language selected. Auto font resize and button repeat.
CSS Color themes

Requires XTest extension.


0.7.2 - Add option to make modifier keys sticky

0.7.1 - fix css install location. Login helper option is restored.

0.7 - Implemented themes and color styles. Dynamic detection of language was lost during porting to KDE4 and now restored. --loginhelper is incomplete

0.5 - added lock function in settings menu to make app window stay locked on the screen.
Right button clicking behave as if shift is clicked.

0.4.9 - new dcop commands docw_show, docw_hide, docw_state query and toggle the dockwidget state

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.

0.4.6 - bugfix when started without x running. Confirm working with KDM and --loginhelper option passed (tested in kubuntu)

0.4.5 - Auto font size implemented, Button repeating function.

0.4 - Resizable/Moveable main window. Numeric/Cursor pad layer. Additional dcop command - toggle

0.3.1 - dcop commands added:
use dcop kvkbd kvkbd show and dcop kvkbd kvkbd hide to toggle visibilty

0.3 - Combined update
- First run syncing with current choosen keyboard layout
- Font configuration implemented
- "-loginhelper" option to be used on KDM/XDM screen (an entry should be added in Xsetup if you want kvkbd on the login screen - kvkbd -loginhelper -display :0)
- Caps/Shift mode updates for non latin keyboards.
- Systray left mouse button update as requested

0.2 - "characters on the virtual keyboard are now changed to the right characters when the localization of the keyboard (e.g. US->CZ)" is changed. Dock widget tolerant to pen press

0.1 - Initial version

 locking kvkbd

I'm starting to use kvkbd, but I will need to lock it. I don't want to permit to move it or resize it.

Is this possible.

In the context menu, there should be an entry "Change Window Behavior" or similar. This will fire up a dialog to specify window behavior which will be managed by KWin. There are entries for size and position available which default to the current geometry.

 make and feature

it is correct to compile with

make -f Makefile.cvs
make install

, right?

While running make, I get the error message

In file included from /usr/include/X11/extensions/XI.h:55,

I currently don't know (because the above error) if the feature is present, but I'd like to see the possibility to change the keyboard layout to another standard one.
My application scenario is to have a german keyboard and want to type russion letters without cryptic utf8-codes.
The virtual keyboard would be a great support in doing this. "Only" a russian standard keyboard is then required.

Please check your Qt and/or Xorg installations seems they have conflicting declarations as the error shows.
Not a kvkbd issue for sure.

On your other question kvkbd can type in respect to what you have selected as keyboard layout using KDE's keyboard tool.

I changed the qt header file. but I have to say that it is at least interesting that kvbd produced this error the first time.
This application is great ++

 kvkbd & kdesktoplock

How do we make kvkbd appear when the desktop has been locked by a user? Just like in KDM w/ the option --loginhelper.

I have lost the use of my right hand for a while and kvkbd has been most helpful.

 cannot change layout of kvkbd

 by debz on: Nov 10 2008

Kvkbd displayed the keyboard when I have english as my default language. But when I change the layout to some other language (in my case Bengali. ) doesn't display the changed keyboard layout.

I am using kubuntu 8.10. Any idea how to do it ? I remember that it used to work in earlier.

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.
