    Using On-screen Keyboard at 800x600 Resolution

    I have a TFT display that is limited to 800x600 resolution. When I try and use the on-screen keyboard the bottom of it is cut off. Is there a way to set the position of the keyboard OR change the default size of the keyboard? This is using 18.04.3.

    Re: Using On-screen Keyboard at 800x600 Resolution

    So I did a little more experimentation last night and found that the issue happens with any display set to a resolution of 800x600.


    To answer your question though:

    the display I am attempting to use is: https://www.hopeindustrial.com/produ...mount-monitor/

    Re: Using On-screen Keyboard at 800x600 Resolution

    Seems difficult to solve as I suspect the behaviuor is hardcoded into the Onboard keyboard. However, you could use wmctrl to move the window.

    Onboard has the window name "Onboard" so it should be pretty easy to move with wmctrl. Open Onboard and check the window name with
    Code:
    wmctrl -l
    . Do wmctrl --help to check the possibilties. When you find the right setting you can attach the wmctrl command to a keyboard shortcut.

    PS You might have to install wmctrl. It's in the standard repos.
    Any follow-up information on your issue would be appreciated. Please have the courtesy to report back.

    Open the Onboard preferences settings and try setting a different layout.
    I see compact and full give a directional icon that if held can drag the keyboard up or down.

    Oops! I've used Onboard for years and never seen that "directional icon" till now. Too easy!

    Re: Using On-screen Keyboard at 800x600 Resolution

    I should have mentioned this in the title... I am not using onboard for this - I am using the Gnome built-in keyboard (accessible via settings -> universal access -> typing -> Screen Keyboard)

    Is there a way to do this with the Gnome built-in keyboard?
