eekboard - an easy to use virtual keyboard toolkit -*- outline -*-

eekboard is a virtual keyboard software package, including a set of
tools to implement desktop virtual keyboards.

* Building

** Dependencies

REQUIRED: GLib2, GTK, PangoCairo, libxklavier, libcroco
OPTIONAL: libXtst, at-spi2-core, IBus, Clutter, Clutter-Gtk, Python, Vala, gobject-introspection, libcanberra

** Build from git repo

  $ git clone git://github.com/ueno/eekboard.git
  $ cd eekboard
  $ ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr --enable-gtk-doc
  $ make
  $ sudo make install

** Build from tarball

  $ ./configure --prefix=/usr
  $ make
  $ sudo make install

* Running

  $ eekboard
  $ eekboard -f # show/hide automatically based on focus-in/focus-out events

Even though eekboard -f watches a11y events by default, it currently
works better with IBus.  To use IBus, do:

  $ gsettings set org.fedorahosted.eekboard focus-listener 'ibus'
