I’m using Antergos on a Samsung 7 Slate Tablet (basically a x64 PC with a touchscreen). Since I need to login by using the touchscreen I would like to use caribou (which is gnome’s standard onscreen keyboard) at the login screen and also use it as a keyboard replacement in general.
There are several threads on the internet on how to make the “onboard” onscreen keyboard work with LightDM. Simply installing onboard and lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings and selecting onboard from the list worked for me. But I want to use caribou instead of onboard. Typing “caribou” or pointing to /usr/lib/caribou/caribou in the settings menu for the onscreen keyboard does not work for me.
caribou worked for me as it should (except from being unavailable in the login screen). However, as I installed a certain gnome extension (https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/1024/caribou-resize-workspace/), the keyboard turned semi-transparent (which is not a bad thing, but also nothing I intended) and it does not pop up when I place my cursor in textfields in chromium any more. It does still work for other applications, such as Terminal or any other application I tried.
Thanks for any help.
