I'm able to reproduce at least every time I flash the device. After a reboot (second boot), it works just fine.

Agreed. After I rebooted, the keyboard worked.

Michał Sawicz (saviq) wrote :

This is very difficult to reproduce - only happens to me on first boot after a fresh flash.

My gut says the keyboard takes a little longer to initialize on first boot and when the shell starts the OSK isn't there yet and it never tries to reconnect again.

OK, confirmed - if maliit-server isn't running when an app is launched, it will never try and reconnect.

Temporary solution - increase the qml-phone-shell timeout in /etc/*services.

Permanent solution - it should try to reconnect periodically or monitor for the OSK interface and reconnect when it becomes available.

I'm affected by this issue and it doesn't seem to be connected with first reboot after flash (I do flash 'phablet-flash', no additional args). I don't have OSK at all when prompted for WIFI password, and I rebooted multimple times. Tested with rev 154 and 158, Galaxy Nexus. I tried to increase qml-phone-shell timeout (put values in range 8 - 30 there) and this didn't help.

Paweł Stołowski (stolowski) wrote :

It seems my issue was a different one as I lost OSK completly in all apps... Probably cause by an old qtubuntu / hybris / platform-api, 'phablet-flash -b' fixed it. So, please disregard my last comment, problem fixed for now.

I just installed today. I have rebooted several times and still no on screen keyboard on Nexus 7 for setting up wireless. The image is in phablet-12 if that is any help.

I'll do another 'phablet-flash b' tonight.
