Om2008.12 "asu" theme does not have keyboard

The "illume" theme of "Om2008.12" has a "querty" button as well as a "wrench" symbol for changing the settings.
The "asu" theme of "Om2008.12" is missing both a "querty" button and a "wrench" symbol for changing the settings. The recommendations of http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Keyboard_Toggle do not work here, because it is not the "illume" theme affected, but the "asu" theme. In previous releases (Om2008.9, Om2008.8), this has not been a problem, because the "illume" theme and the "asu" theme apparently looked identical for some reason. However, in "Om2008.12", mixing the bright "illume" theme with the black|dark themed Qtopia applications is a gross style error. Thus, fallback to the "illume" theme of Om2008.12 is not an option.

As a side-effect, it is not possible to change "cache dir" paths in the tangoGPS configuration pane when using the "asu" theme, because no keyboard pops up and no keyboard can be made pop up manually.

qwerty button can be added by editing E17 theme. But I agree, it's a serious problem...

How can the "asu" theme be edited to make the keyboard work? I tried using the "illume" theme, but another "bug" of this theme is the clock which is virtually unusable because it is so small (and because it is an analog clock, making exact reading of the time difficult).

I know how to use edje_decc and the like, I just do not know the exact location in the ".edc" file where to insert proper keyboard support.

Replying to xbaldauf:

How can the "asu" theme be edited to make the keyboard work?

From this message (http://lists.openmoko.org/pipermail/community/2008-December/038614.html):

  • extract the files from http://openmoko.spb.ru/download/file.php?id=12
  • put asu in /etc/enlightenment/default_profile
  • put module.illume.cfg in /usr/share/enlightenment/data/config/asu/ (make a backup first)
  • put asu.edj in /usr/share/enlightenment/data/themes (make a backup first)
  • add "export QTOPIA_NO_VIRTUAL_KEYBOARD=1" in /etc/X11/Xsession.d/89qtopia
  • delete ~/.e folder (and/or make a backup) ugly-ugly!?
  • /etc/init.d/xserver-nodm restart
