    Re: Dell Duo Setup Guide

    For those of you who are using or would like to use kvkbd as your onscreen keyboard and want it in your unity dock here is how.

    1)first open a terminal and run with no sudo

    Code:
     nautilus
    navigate to /home/XXXXX/.gconf/desktop/unity/lanucher/favorites. (you will have to hit ctrl + h to show hidden files and folders and XXXXXX=your user name) create a new folder called

    app-kvkbd.desktop

    open another folder up and copy the .xml file inside and put it into the folder you just created. once it is in the new folder open it with gedit remove everything and paste in

    Code:
     <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <gconf>
        <entry name="desktop_file" mtime="1293677807" type="string">
            <stringvalue>/usr/share/applications/kvkbd.desktop</stringvalue>
        </entry>
        <entry name="type" mtime="1293677807" type="string">
            <stringvalue>application</stringvalue>
        </entry>
        <entry name="priority" mtime="1294117426" type="float" value="3"/>
    </gconf>
    then save and close.

    2) open a new terminal and run

    Code:
     gksudo gedit /.gconf/desktop/unity/launcher/favorites/app-kvkbd.desktop/%gconf.xml
    Code:
     nautilus
    navigate to home/.gconf/desktop/unity/launcher/favorites find the app-kvkbd.desktop file and change the icon to the kvkbd icon.

    the icon is located in /usr/share/icons/Humanity/apps/48 and it is called preferences-desktop-keyboard.svg

    3) Run

    Code:
     gconf-editor
    go to desktop/unity/launcher and click on the favorites folder (do not expand) double click on the favorites_list and add app-kvkbd.desktop.

    Reboot or logout and back in and the icon should be there if you have any problems let me know.
