  • on-screen keyboard can hide windows: we knew that when discussing #8281, tracked upstream and mentioned on the upstream design page already

The GNOME 3.28 Release Notes state that now "the view is shifted to ensure that the text area is visible while typing" so this won't be a problem anymore in Tails 4.0, based on Buster :)

Confirmed, works fine on feature/buster \o/

  • no way to change layout: we knew that when discussing #8281, already tracked upstream; Alan reported some progress about this on #8281, no idea what's the status, I'll let Alan report on the ticket we have about monitoring this upstream

In GNOME 3.28 "a variety of layouts are supported for different locales".

The on-screen keyboard does not pop up after login in French. Will investigate.

On current Debian sid, the on-screen keyboard works just fine in GDM's password entry field. So there's a problem specific to our Greeter here => that's out of scope for this ticket, filed #16291.

The on-screen keyboard does not pop up after login in French.

On sid, it does pop up in a GNOME session in French (=> filed #16292 about the Tails-specific problem), but the keyboard layout is QWERTY. In Spanish on Tails feature/buster the keyboard layout is QWERTY + ñ.

So I think I'm done with this evaluation, see you on these new tickets.

#7 Updated by intrigeri 9 months ago

And regarding the ability to type extended chars (e.g. ü) that are not part of the current keyboard layoad, this just was presumably fixed: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-shell/issues/109, https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/mutter/merge_requests/162. But it won't make it into Buster and the diff feels too big to request a backport to 3.30 so we'll have the fix in Tails 5.0, which is better than "let's hope someone fixes that some day".
