    Default Xvkbd Problem


    Hi

    I'm running openSUSE 11.1 on an HP TC1100 Tablet and every time I
    logon, I'm presented with the Xvkbd virtual keyboard. I can't seem to
    close this under my account and if possible, would like to disable
    completely as I don't use anyway. How do I go about doing this?

    Also, I have two shortcuts, "Online Help" and "openSUSE" which I cannot
    delete from my desktop. Any advice on how to get rid of those?

    If you're using KDE 4, rightclick on the desktop (or whatever you need
    to do on a tablet to bring up the context menu) and select Unlock
    widgets.

    Then rightclick the icon and select "Remove this icon" and lock the
    widgets again again after you're done.

    Hi Axeia

    Thanks for your reply . I'm using Gnome but do have KDE4 installed
    also. Should I be able to delete under Gnome or is this something that
    has to be done under KDE4?



    Edit: Under Gnome, "Move to Wastebucket" is greyed out.

    Just logged onto KDE4 and I don't have those shortcuts on the desktop.

    Reagrding the virtual keyboard (xvkbd), I now have 4 of them loaded
    (taking up the screen) and I can't close any of them .

    Double bump

    Any ideas? Do other tablet users have this problem? (it's really
    annoying). I can kill these windows in Gnome using "Force Quit" but what
    is the equivilent in KDE4?

    My old Acer C301 did the same thing when I installed 11.1 Live CD. I
    just went into the Yast>software, searched for the keyboard
    program...dont remember what it was called, but you have it listed in
    your post. Anyway, search for it and delete it...no more problem with
    that annoying keyboard multiplying like the gremlins..
    Take care,
    Jeff
