Just got my Librem 11 and the on-screen keyboard won't open for login or screen unlock

Has anyone else seen this? The osk opens fine to decrypt the disk but when I get to the actual login it won’t open, same thing if I lock the screen. I can use a physical keyboard to unlock it but I really shouldn’t need to dock it to the keyboard case or attach a keyboard every time I need to login or unlock my tablet. It kinda makes the tablet less portable and convenient if I need to keep a physical keyboard handy just to use it. If I wanted to have to use a keyboard I would’ve bought a laptop instead.

Thanks for reporting this! That was supposed to be fixed in librem11-base, but evidently 0pureos3 wasn’t published correctly, I’ll check that out.

For the moment, you can work around it with a few terminal commands to create the missing gsetting overrride:

echo -e '[org.gnome.desktop.a11y.applications]\nscreen-keyboard-enabled=true\n' | sudo tee /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/99_phog-osk.gschema.override
sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/

That worked perfectly! Thank you so much!
