  • Cc zecke@… added
  • Priority changed from high to normal
  • Type changed from defect to enhancement
  • Severity changed from major to normal
  • Milestone set to Om2008.9

The best ways to approach this are:

[1] add the manual qwerty layout to qtopia kbd (used in qt-terminal) and change the input method in options
[2] allow change of kbd via settings, which can include a usable kbd for usage in terminals (see #1764)

Holger, I think the best way to get this, within Qtopia would be to add manual kbd that qt-terminal uses.
In qt-terminal, you can switch the kdb layout in the options menu, which completely changes the layout.
It is there, we are just not using it.

I enabled the "keyboard" in the Qtopia source tree and I can input text and navigate with it.
