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

 colors and highlighting

Great helper application! Is there a way to optionally highlight the keys (colored frame around them maybe) on mouseover so you better see where you are with the mouse? And how about an option to color the keys in groups (like in kcalc)? It's a great keyboard for visually impaired people but those two features I miss.

 kvkbd root mode only

 by janet on: Mar 15 2009

When I use kvkbd as loginhelper in KDM
(HOME=/root kvkbd --loginhelper &) I have the problem that it does not close when my session starts. I then have kvkbd in root mode as user. Isn't that a security issue when a program is used in root mode all the time (without need)? I'd prefer to exit root's kvkbd automatically with logging in as user and then starting a new kvkbd in user mode. How do I do it? The kvkbd autostarted as user is killed by the root kvkbd.

First, Many thanks for your job.
I use kvkbd from jaunty depot but I have some disfunctions:
- Arrows on keypad don't seem to work.
- Some single click make appear 2 3 sometimes 4 times the choosen letter :/

So, should I suggest you to implement:
- highlighting the key pressed with a flashy color
- autoclic the keys if the mouse is over during 0.5-2 second (example)
- hide the keyboard in the border of the screen if the mouse is no over after 2-5 seconds
- adjust the transparency

That's not because I became disable that now I must be dumb

I noticed that the file standart.css is located into kvkbd-0.7/src directory, but colors/cmake_install.cmake looks for it into the colors/ directory, so the build fails.
Copying that file to the right directory (colors/) solves the issue.

Thanks for pointing this out. I've updated the source code including the fix for this.
Also loginhelper option is back now.

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.
