Installed xvkbd today into Puppy Slacko 5.7

/etc/X11/app-defaults is where the config files are. I copied XVkbd-uk to XVkbd so that xvkbd defaults to a UK keyboard layout (I also used the flag coloured version)

Also added xvkbd.windowGeometry: 800x260 at the end of the file to enlarge the keyboard more to my liking

Subject description: Use XVKBD, el teclado Puppy !
 

Thanks to xvkbd, we can easily write Spanish con las tildes y otras palabras So usual in South America. Their Puppies are pretty, but my keyboard is AZERTY,

Pls could you precise how you enlarge the keyboard, por favor ?

PostPosted: Tue 28 Apr 2015, 10:50    Post subject: xvkbd 3.2 in pulp linux (4.1.2)
Subject description: also not working
 

I got the posted 3.1 version to work with the two added libraries
in lupu 5.2.5, and then the 3.2 version included with puppeee
(for Asus eeepc) which needs no added libs in lupu 5.2.5 or pulp
(puppy 4.1.2) and I tested 3.2 in lupu 5.2.5 and pulp. First click
focus, then the terminal where you want to type, then the key(s).
I did not test 3.1. There is also a 3.5 package but it needs two
added libraries even in lupu 5.2.5.
3.1 needs libXp and libXaw3d.so.8
3.2 needs libXaw.so.7 (found in pulp and lupu 5.2.5)
3.5 needs libXaw.so.8 (not in either)

3.2 corrects a missing vertical line left of the number pad.

I did not 'install' but simply copied the binary (and for 3.1
the libs - and symlinked them). I can put xvkbd into
/etc/rc.d/rc.locale to start up on a 650MHz laptop with some bad keys
and only 256MB RAM that I set up for a 10 year old neighbor.
And also add it to the jwm menu in case he loses it.

Since the xvkbd from puppeee (2010, kernel 2.6.33) works, I will
try the games from it in pulp. The neighbor is into games.

PostPosted: Tue 28 Apr 2015, 18:06    Post subject: Can PET for version 3.5 be available?  

I am looking for version 3.5 in a "modern" PUP distro. Namely, PET to work in LxPUP,TahrPUP, or Vivid or Slacko6. Dependencies?

And PET(s) for any of the 64bit PUPs.

This allows not only to get around bad keyboard, but also has touchscreen use, and etc.

I think what is needed to here.

Thanks in advance, if possible.

Say, gc, you could always do:
src2pkg url-of-source
That would make you independent of other packagers... Just kidding, old boy.

Hi GC, did you find what you were looking for? I did make a v3.5 pet based on a version by Medor - it seems to have no dependencies on pups from wary through to Slacko 5.6 so may be suitable for the newer pups too. This pet is a cutdown version as i wanted a small keyboard to save screen area and I only neded english version, but maybe it is worth a try?

On Screen Keyboard 'modern distros' by VividPup 6.5
'I am looking for version 3.5 in a "modern" PUP distro. Namely, PET to work in LxPUP,TahrPUP, or Vivid or Slacko6. Dependencies? '
Searching.

"Then when I just hover the mouse over the keys
without pressing, it already types the letters for
example in the firefox adress bar...
Hmm, when I don t press the Focus key,
it does not make anything, although I click
onto the keys...strange...
"
Set on/off of the automatic click feature and the delay before automatic click is activated. If this feature is set, xvkbd will work as if left mouse button is clicked when mouse pointer is moved on a button and stays long enough. You may want to set Jump Pointer? to OFF to avoid auto-repeating.

This keyboard is available in the Cloud, in Chrome Version of Vividpup 6.5. I check for more information to give you.

I made a one line script from Aragon's suggestion on page 1 and with a simple drag and drop to the desktop, one click gets me to the Virtual Keyboard.

Works with Quirky Unicorn and Quirky April 32 bit.

Hungarian to get virtual keyboard to their colours, in their Precise 5.7.3 click the blue. For hungarians only.
But as these Puppies improved in hungary please me a lot, hungarian xvkbd makes my job less difficult.
