Onscreen Keyboard
To run the onscreen keyboard in Plasma Mobile, you'll first need to install qtvirtualkeyboard-plugin. This application `is in Debian <>`_ but not available for armhf so get the package soure from Debian, build and install it::
purism@pureos:~$ wget
purism@pureos:~$ wget
purism@pureos:~$ tar xf qtvirtualkeyboard-opensource-src_5.9.2+dfsg.orig.tar.xz
purism@pureos:~$ tar xf qtvirtualkeyboard-opensource-src_5.9.2+dfsg-1.debian.tar.xz'
purism@pureos:~$ cd qtvirtualkeyboard-opensource-src-5.9.2 && sudo mv ../debian .
purism@pureos:~/qtvirtualkeyboard-opensource-src-5.9.2$ dpkg-buildpackage -sa -us -uc
This will build qtvirtualkeyboard-plugin and it's dependent qml-module-qtquick-virtualkeyboard and install them and start Plasma Mobile::
purism@pureos:~$ sudo dpkg -i qml-module-qtquick-virtualkeyboard_5.9.2+dfsg-1_armhf.deb qtvirtualkeyboard-plugin_5.9.2+dfsg-1_armhf.deb
Once you have a Plasma Mobile desktop, check the keyboard status and enable it::
purism@pureos:~$ qdbus org.kde.KWin /VirtualKeyboard org.kde.kwin.VirtualKeyboard.isEnabled
purism@pureos:~$ qdbus org.kde.KWin /VirtualKeyboard org.kde.kwin.VirtualKeyboard.isenable
purism@pureos:~$ qdbus org.kde.KWin /VirtualKeyboard org.kde.kwin.VirtualKeyboard.isEnabled
Now, your onskreen keyboard should work. To test this, open kwrite and click in the text field. You should see that the keyboard is initialized and functioning!
