Pinetab attachable keyboard
#1
I am using Mobian and some users over at Discord chat were able to get the trackpad working for me and I am thrilled!. I am wondering if I am having a settings issue that aren’t allowing me to use any of the keys on the keyboard. I know some users had an easier time and if you can share settings maybe that can help. I would be thankful for any help.

First image of Mobian I tried was 20200908, keyboard worked without tweaks. With 20200910 the touchpad is working also. Maybe go to "settings->region&languages" to see if an input methode is selected. How does the keyboard react in UBports? Maybe the more experienced linux users can help you to find out if it's HW or SW related.

UBPorts was worse. Trackpad barely worked even. I had a lot of freezing in UBPorts, etc. Mobian has been smooth.

Tried language settings and the generic answer of doing xserver input and neither worked for me to get the keys working. Only the Mousepad works for now.

Sounds like a HW issue, but don't know how to find out for sure. What happens if you plug in a USB Keyboard into the Typ A connector?

I got a keyboard and connected usb and that keyboard works.

Well then you should contact the support I would say.
