I am using EndeavourOS KDE in a touch screen laptop.
I have noticed that while the maliit-keyboard appears when I touch on the input method icon, it does not appear again after pulling it down.
If I run
pkill maliit-keyboard and then click on the on the input method icon again, then it appears.
I am planning to assign a shortcut in the panel which will run
pkill maliit-keyboard and then run
the command to pull up the on-screen-keyboard on demand.
What is the command that is executed when one clicks on the input-method plasmoid (that brings up the on-screen-keyboard)?
They seem to have fixed the issue on Plasma mobile, but not on Plasma desktop. Which is why, I will try to make a workaround with a keyboard icon on the panel which will kill the non-responsive on-screen-keyboard running in the background, and call the input method to regenerate it.
