About Eazykeyboard

Eazykeyboard provides a simple onscreen keyboard that can be used to type with keyboard or mouse into application windows. It is useful for physically impaired people and who are unfamiliar with certain keyboard layout. It sends key events to the application where the input foucs was last set. User can either click on buttons of this virtual keyboad or directly press physical keys(with input focus on eazykeyboard). The eazykeyboad forwards appropriate key events to the application input window.

Features
  • Supports multiple languages (All languages supported by gtk-2.0).
  • Supports one to many mapping (One key can send many characters, maximum 3).
  • It has facility to change language on the fly.
  • Initialy reads current keyboard map loaded into the memory.
  • It is transperant to xmodmap and Xkb input mechanism.
  • It may work independent of current keyboard map loaded into the memory.

Practical?

setup need love.
could easily be tweaked to be "betterer"

This is literally a P.O.C release... do we need this?
could it be helpful?

meh I dunno.

EDIT: This happens when you have a directory called. .easykeyboard already in your home dir and the files are missing... shouldn't happen now.



Probably quite a bit to fixup... dunno.
not awake really.

I guess I was thinking it could maybe have some docking gtk_window_set_gravity () options...

Layout needs lots of love. but yeah anyways.

Happy to take feedback?

Should I even bother?


Needs to be "always on top" I reckon....

Probably a bunch of other stuff....

That feature where it can also pass key presses from the physical keyboard, even when it has the focus, should make it worth doing.

We could use the same keyboard app on both touchscreen and keyboard kindles.
(With maybe a "hide me" button on the layout for the physical keyboard kindles.)

hmm good point.

I literally just patched the titles IIRC.

probably could be modded pretty easily.
