RPi Touchscreen - on screen keyboard

Sun Sep 13, 2015 6:53 am

So I've got my screen up and running on Raspbian. I've updated it to get all the screen's drivers etc. The touchscreen is working. But there's is no sign of the 'virtual' on-screen keyboard. Anyone know how to access it?

Perhaps this thread is of interest:

(There are also several others - use a Google search** for "site:raspberrypi.org florence" to find them)

** that's probably the "best" method to search the forum since the forum's own search tool is very poor!!
Still running Raspbian Jessie or Stretch on some older Pi's (an A, B1, B2, B+, P2B, 3xP0, P0W, 2xP3A+, P3B+, P3B, B+, A+ and a B2) but Buster on the P4B's. See: https://www.cpmspectrepi.uk/raspberry_pi/raspiidx.htm
