Hi. How can I make the virtual keyboard appear?
Any ideas? Some dbus commands perhaps?

Would like to use the command in a Queen BeeCon widget.
Objective is to be able to:
- poke at the widget -> keyb appears.
- key in name I want -> contact of that name appears.

Thanks & best regards.

He means if you go to App Menu -> Settings -> Personalisation -> Text Input, there is an option to enable disable virtual keyboard.

Sorry, but I don't know the dbus command.

You could use Scout app.
Poke Scout app shortcut > Poke Search Bar > Search via VKB

It also searches conversations and calender events at the same time, which is handy.
