    Any drivers that put a keyboard on your screen for text entry?

    I can't seem to locate a utility that interfaces with linux to pop up a keyboard on the touchscreen so I can enter text. Has anyone seen such a thing?

    I'm still searching, but so far after about 2 days I haven't found anything.

    Thanks a lot Eubey. Matchbox's keyboard works great. I was shocked when I found I could use it in other windows managers. Thumbs up!
