Description

eekboard is a virtual keyboard (aka on-screen keyboard) software package, designed to be flexible and easy to use. For users, it provides a simple program called "eekboard" which works just like other virtual keyboards, though maybe it looks fancier. For developers, it provides a D-Bus protocol server and libraries to access. This allows developers to create custom clients which interact with other desktop technologies such as input methods, desktop keyboard settings, and accessibility.


How to test

  1. install eekboard if not installed
    $ sudo yum install eekboard

As a standalone application:

  1. start eekboard
  2. focus in some text window (like gedit or gnome-terminal)
  3. click buttons on the eekboard window

To use Inscript or any other m17n keymap:

  1. start eekboard
  2. click "Setup" button on the bottom right corner
  3. select "Keyboards" tab
  4. click "Add" button and select "Hindi (inscript)"
  5. click "Change Keyboard" button on the bottom left corner

To use with ibus-m17n

  1. enable ibus-m17n Indic input method in IBus (like "Hindi - inscript (m17n)")
  2. click "Screen Keyboard" on the IME menu

To disable eekboard in ibus-m17n and use iok instead

  1. install iok if not installed
    $ sudo yum install iok
  2. set screen keyboard implementation to iok
    dconf write /desktop/ibus/engine/m17n/virtual-keyboard-implementation "'iok'"
  3. use ibus-m17n as above
