on screen keyboard

Post by blighty » Sat Apr 14, 2007 10:44 am

Hi Ya,

Just found my usb keyboard not working ( def keyboard as it don`t on my pc either ) and thought i`d try to use the on screen keyboard to log in
and use instead.

Trouble is every time i click a letter it is un-higlighting were i want to write & nothing is written.

has anyone else found this problem? or know of a fix?

Hiya,

Though I haven't used much of the onscreen keyboard, I think what you're describing is not being Focused.

From FAQ:

When I try entering the login details with the on-screen keyboard nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

Nothing! You just need to click the "Focus" button the keyboard, then click in the username text box. Typing should now work correctly.

Hopefully it was as simple as that, but like I said, I don't use the OSK, so I can't vouch for it.
