Bug Description

Ubuntu 18.10 / GNOME Shell 3.30.1
Ubuntu 18.04 LTS / GNOME Shell 3.28.1

Steps to reproduce on our end:

- Login (Xorg as default)
- Attempt to swipe up with finger from below screen
    RESULT: It draws a thin vertical (desktop) selection box, but no OSK
- Logout
- Log back in, after first hitting 'gear' button to select 'Ubuntu on Wayland'
- ps -e | grep Xwayland #shows 'Xwayland' process is running
- Repeat swipe up with finger from below screen
    RESULT: OSK shows up as expected

This has been verified both in 1920x1080 as well as 3840x2160 resolutions (also with various scaling options selected)

Issue is also logged upstream:

Thank you for your bug report. Can you add your journalctl log after triggering the issue? Swipping from the bottom on an inspiron 11 using the Ubuntu (x11) default session works here on bionic & cosmic
