Currently I have installed my own gtk app inside Ubuntu Phone Meizu MX4.
It works, because in the .desktop file I turn Xmir on:

  [Desktop Entry]
  Name=LazarusApp Demo
  Comment=Lazarus developed app, made to run via xmir

and inside my

  export QT_IM_MOUDULE=maliitphablet
  export GTK_IM_MODULE=maliitphablet
  #below is just added after reading the comments in this thread:
  exec $@

now, my app do launch and works, however, I just cannot get the onskreen
keyboard to show up. Again, it is a GTK app, not a QT one.

If there is no way to make this to work, then someone please tell me,
can I just use some shell command to just trigger the onscreen keyboard
regardless of the status of the focus inside my app? I mean, to
popup/hide the ISK fully programatically, without actual integration
with focusing on text input allowed control, but just on demand? Because
then, I could at least call the OSK programatically from my app.

  keyboard does not show up on xenial

Status in ubuntu-keyboard package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Expected behaviour:

  Install ubuntu-keyboard, run maliit-server, click on place to enter
  text -> keyboard shows up.

  What happens:

  Running maliit-server after installing ubuntu-keyboard-english in
  terminal shows following error:

  WARNING: void MIMPluginManagerPrivate::_q_setActiveSubView(const
  QString&, Maliit::HandlerState) "" "en" is
  not enabled

  Clicking on fields for entering text, does not cause the keyboard to
  show up.

  What I tried so far:

  export QT_IM_MODULE=Maliit
  export GTK_IM_MODULE=Maliit


  gconftool-2 -s --type list --list-type string /maliit/onscreen/enabled 
  gconftool-2 -s --type list --list-type string /maliit/onscreen/active 

  according to


  but it still won't show up.
