remove onscreen keyboard from loginscreen

Post by althena77 » Thu Jun 23, 2005 8:01 pm

Hello!!

I tried for a long time to keep xvkbd from appearing on my desktop after booting Gentoox and neither "keyboardtoggle" or "magic no-keyboard" did help.
No I finally found I way while switching from KDE to IceWM, I did just uncomment the line "/usr/bin/X11/xvkbd -geometry 794x130+0-74 &" in .xsession in my homedir.

Now I wonder if there is a similar way to get rid of the onscreen keyboard in the loginscreen of GDM too. Is there a file perhaps in /etc where I can delete/uncomment a line to keep xvkbd from appearing in GDM??

OK, found it by myself. If there are others who want to remove xvkbd from the loginscreen:

Open /etc/x11/gdm/init/Default with an editor as root and uncomment the following lines as I did:

# if [ -f /usr/bin/X11/xvkbd ]; then
# /usr/bin/X11/xvkbd -geometry 620x130+0-0 -no-keypad &

Should also comment out the "fi" that'll follow that "if" =)

Or you could just move it so that it isn't found by that if statement. That might make it so that it is NEVER launched (can't be found).
