Thread: Virtual Keyboard Showing on Startup Screen

    Default Virtual Keyboard Showing on Startup Screen

    (sorry for grammatical erros, En isn't my fisrt lang)

    Hi, I installed yesterday opensuse tumbleweed (KDE) on a laptop, and just added 2 repositories (packman and another one "dvd...") which I deleted before dist-upgrade for security reasons, don't allowing zypper downgrade the 21 packages when it upgraded. Well, a reboot after and when I'm on login screen* and click to type my password the screen turns black and show only a virtual keyboard** to login.

    I'm not a beginner on linux (just here) so I know that this app is somewhere enable as one of my startup apps, and uninstalling it or disabling should work, but I don't know who is it, kvkbd isn't installed.

    Here's two pictures of my problem:

    Hi and welcome to the Forum
    Looks like you can remove the virtual keyboard package;
    Code:
    zypper rm libqt5-qtvirtualkeyboard
    
    and lock?
    zypper al libqt5-qtvirtualkeyboard

    Thanks, for some reason, the HUUUUUUGE virtual keyboard started popping up on my 30" 2560x1600 screen yesterday, it is laughably monstrous, lol.

    Excellent! Thanks. I don't have a touchscreen, so this was really annoying.

    I have been living with this for a couple of months on LEAP 15.1 . Thanks, I will try to remove. Question: is it auto-selected to open this way after upgrade from LEAP15 to 15.1?
