OSK layout lacks important keys
#1
Since my PinePhone arrived yesterday I've started distro-hopping to find which one suits me best.

The one major problem that prevents me from feeling I've given Mobian a fair shot is the onscreen keyboard. I use the terminal a lot on my desktop computers and the lack of Ctrl, Tab and arrow keys means it's very tedious to work in a terminal.

I've had this issue before with the GNOME 3 OSK but it seems like it's still not fixed upstream. Maybe we could hack the layout downstream or use another keyboard?

It may also be included by default, I just have to find the time to fix some small issues.

Thank you, this is a massive improvement for the terminal!

I'll tweak it a little and see if I can come up with my perfect keyboard layout (I'll eventually need to integrate the Å, Ä and Ö keys as well).

Be sure to share your tweaks. :-)

@Boern I added a modified version of your layout to my tree, as well as my modifications to the US and SE keyboards inspired by your keyboard Smile
