[SOLVED] Suggestion: On-Screen Keyboard For Ubuntu MATE Installation

Suggestion: Can you add an on-screen keyboard to installation setup? This feature is available in installed operating system. I think it’s a good idea to do it either in installation. Definitely, may help someone who doesn’t have an access to a USB keyboard or something else…

It is already there :slight_smile:

:grinning: Thanks for reply. Actually it’s my first time to install Ubuntu MATE in Raspberry Pi 2 and I didn’t find this feature in installation. Can say where is it?! :blush:


you should have ‘Onboard’ in your ‘Universal Access’ menu.

This version https://ubuntu-mate.org/raspberry-pi/ is suitable for Raspberry Pi’s family. when It boot up it’ll straightly goes into installation wizard without any menus or other things…

Hi, dear MATE’s,

is there any update on the on-Screen Keyboard issue?
It would be really helpfull if one could use the on-Screen Installation during the Installation wizard Setup (for the raspberry pi)

Thanks a lot, ur awesome

P.S: this Topic is stated as SOLVED but I cant find the onscreen Keyboard in the Installation wizard. thanks

Hi, I would also like to know how to get On-screen keyboard when installing Ubuntu Mate on Raspberry Pi. I can’t seem to find it.

Goto Applications, Systems tools, Mate terminal. (or use terminal from startup) then type;

sudo apt-get install matchbox-keyboard

reboot the pi and then under Applications, Accessories you should find a keyboard!
