The gconf value /apps/gnome-screensaver/embedded_keyboard_enable in Oneiric no longer works obviously. Is there a way to show virtual keyboard in gnome-screensaver 3.x? Does similar dconf value exist?
It makes unlocking the screen without the keyboard on tablets impossible.

5 gives details of how to enable the embedded keyboard for a locked screen including the gsettings values

Any tablet-type screen keyboard must compy with the XEmbed specification.

Fortunately the standard onboard keyboard is XEmbed compliant - you need to pass the --xid parameter (type onboard --help for parameters you can pass to onboard)


gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.screensaver embedded-keyboard-enabled true
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.screensaver embedded-keyboard-command "onboard --xid"
