literki tested with shr-20100306 running illume2 keyboard set to none.
fullscreen does not crash the phone.

there was literki which was a similar approach and I loved it.
However, there was some illume bug that prevented to open any
application in fullscreen. Thats why I stopped using it. So if u
manage to overcome that issues I would be pleased to use that :p

Maybe u can take a look at literki to grab some ideas or go on
extending that one instead of building one from scratch.

Hi

 I think it would be nice to have fullscreen transparent keyboard instead
 of small keyboard in the bottom that eats screen space. So anybody know
 application that fit my needs? I googled... but found nothing

Fatfingershell.

But as the name implies, that's a shell.

Obviously, if there is screen interactivity
allowed in the application where you'd need
the keyboard (I mean, if it has buttons), you'll
have problems overlaying it with a transparent
keyboard.

Which can be solved. I'm curious what you
have in mind. Yes, I'd love it.

What about creating new fullscreen keyboard profile for illume? My
idea is huge keyboard in landscape display mode with single line
upwards for text input.

With xcompmgr and transset you can make any window transparent. This
works for example with the xvkbd keyboard.

Thanx :)

But it's not exactly what I need. Keys of that keyboard are not
transparent as I saw. Also keyboard must determine portrait/landscape
and resize to whole screen(but it can be coded).
