On-screen keyboard not triggered

#1 Post by Uhuru »

Hello everybody,

What would be the cause(s) of the on-screen keyboard not showing up when I put the cursor in whichever browser to type in (brave, icecat, firefox...etc) ?

P.S.: I use gnome desktop on a laptop.

Maybe few use it?
I don't believe there is a default standard setup? Debian doesn't come with one as far as I know. Sure, one can be installed, and then configured by the user, you. A working default is the territory of 'buntu's for tablets?
Last I played with one was a few years ago for vehicle units, long story. I think I used 'Onboard'. It could be setup to be used in lightdm, and have multiple instances attached to things, or a global one. Details are fuzzy, but it wasn't up to smart phone standards...
I think 'Florence' (?) could work prior to a DE, but ?

So what are you using? There is no default...

Prior to posting my first message, the searches that I had made over the net informed me about the fact that, except on Wayland, there is a D-Bus event bug not being triggered, causing the on-screen keyboard not to appear outside of GTK applications.
Afterwards, I tried to make use of the on-screen keyboard on Wayland (gdm3), outside of GTK applications (in browsers for instance), however the problem still remains...
