I think gdm brings up its own caribou keyboard. Much prefer onboard but unfortunately doesn't work inside wayland sessions.

On a related note, a physical mouse and keyboard with gnome desktop shell appears to work much faster than touchscreen input. It suggests the lag is not cpu related so maybe fixable in software?

An official gnome3 mobian release would be nice if they could find a decent on-screen keyboard.

I love using GDM3 + Gnome 3 on top of Mobian, but that builtin keyboard is awful. I have several keyboards installed, but it indeed does use its own instead. It sadly doesn't scale well with the default scaling, isn't as responsive, and lacks features like the arrow keys/tabs/CTRL/etc. I'd love to force it to use Phoc if at all possible, but I haven't figured out how to do so.
