Virtual keyboard ?

Hi all,

I have a question where I can not find an direct answer to on the Yocto-web/wiki.

I wonder if the Yocto-arm-sato build supports a device that has no-REAL keyboard but only a touch-screen.

If so, does the VIRTUAL-keyboard pup-op automatically, if you touch something that is editable (like in android and/or meego) ?


Kinds regards,
Noel


NOTE : I've been playing with the Yocto-1.0 build into qemu and I do not find how to 'REMOVE' the virtual keyboard once it is visible on screen.

Yes, this works fine. You just need to set these in /etc/formfactor/machconfig:
HAVE_TOUCHSCREEN=1
HAVE_KEYBOARD=0

If it comes up by demand, it will go away when you press enter.
