The convergence kit/docking bar does not seem to work for accessing USB devices like mice or printers --- through the port on the Pinephone. If you connect the docking bar to a red power cable and plug into the keyboard it will take a charge.

When using apps on the computer which need keyboard input a virtual/on-screen keyboard is present even though the physical keyboard is in place. With Mobian there is a mini keyboard icon you can touch and the on-screen keyboard disappears. Getting rid of it over and over again (like when browsing the Internet) can be very tiresome and distracting. With the keyboard attached it would be helpful to have NO on-screen keyboard.

I do not know how difficult it would be to remedy this situation.

Great praise to all involved in bringing the keyboard into existence.

Go into your accessibility settings in Phosh to turn off on screen keyboard. There's a thread on here about it. Maybe make an issue on the Phosh Gitlab because I would bet they don't come to the Pine64 forums looking for bugs.
Thanks for the keyboard tip, regreenburg.

Ooops. Make that ragreenburg.

For sure. For other info on the keyboard check the Pine phone Accessories thread that you might want to check out.
