Description:

Kvkbd is a virtual keyboard for KDE, it contains many feature like system tray and dock support, autodetection and on the fly change of the keyboard layout, scripting with DBus, etc.

This version was originally released with Kubuntu 8.10 but I was delaying it's official release until some issues could be solved(see below). Due to a lack of time I'm releasing it here because it's usable and works well.

KNOWN ISSUE(see README for full list):
- Launching Kvkbd with KDM4 doesn't work(and doesn't with any app at all in fact). I've been trying to solve that with the KDM maintainer but we still haven't found a good solution unfortunately.




Changelog:

0.6
* Fix behaviour of the caps lock, num lock, alt gr and shift keys(thanks to Scott for his Caps Lock patch!)
* Repeating keys by pressing a button for a long amount of time now works correctly
* Correctly save the configuration options
* Remember if the extent was visible when closing and display it at the next start if it's the case
* Added semantic markup to the i18n() calls
* Added a hack so that keys "^" and "¨" are displayed correcly, at least on azerty keyboards
* Correctly displays the "&" key(previously it only worked if it was accessible using the Shift key)
* The numpad doesn't go beyond the screen edge when enabled near the right of the screen
* Added a DBUS Interface
* Use kdelibs coding style
* Bug fixes and code cleanup
* 0.5.99 regressions fixed:
- The dock now show/hide the widget only when it is clicked, not dragged
- Memleaks fixes (thanks to Laurent Montel!)
- Update the keyboard mapping if xmodmap/setxkbmap changes it

0.5.99(only released for Kubuntu Intrepid Alpha)
* KDE4 port
* Use a double arrow icon instead of ">>" for the button to show/hide the numpad
* Display a 4 arrows cursor when dragging the keyboard
* Various bug fixes and code cleanup
* User manual for Kvkbd

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.

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

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

0.3
* 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.

I have using kvkbd 0.6 width Kubuntu Intrepid (KDE4.1.3 and KDM 4.1.3)
I have writed the
"kvkbd --loginhelper --display :0" in /etc/kde4/kdm/Xsetup
But when the kdm starting I see the kvkbd keyboard at short time when screen is black, but after wallpaper and other elements shows, the kvkbd keyboard hides!
Any way to solve this issue?
If anybody use the kvkbd width kde4 - post yout Xsetup file please!

Please read the description of the app on this webpage, this is a known bug in KDM, no solution at the moment unfortunately(other than using XDM instead of KDM).

And how I can popup the kvkbd keyboard on X unlock screen? For example, I go away from my Tablet PC and after that it goes to sleep. I waked up it and see the window to enter password and no virtual keyboard.

Unfortunately, kscreensaver don't allow other apps to have focus for obvious security reason. The good news is: In KDE 4.2, you'll be able to have plasmoids on the screensaver, and as I plan to port Kvkbd to Plasma(might take sometimes thought, unless someone help me), it will be possible to use it there :)

Hi,
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.

 Suggestions

Hi,

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


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

kvkbd needs to also link against libX11; here's a patch for 0.6:

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.
