Squeekboard honors the gnome "screen-keyboard-enabled" setting. Either enable this through gnome-settings under accessibility or run:
$ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.a11y.applications screen-keyboard-enabled true
To make the keyboard show you can use either an application that does so automatically, like a text editor or `python3 ./tests/`, or you can manually trigger it with:
busctl call --user sm.puri.OSK0 /sm/puri/OSK0 sm.puri.OSK0 SetVisible b true
