Weston virtual keyboard not installed

I am using a custom toradex image with torizon 5.7.0 build 17 as base on an apalis-imx8.

I have been using the weston-vivante image provided by torizon with the ‘2’ tag from dockerhub. It seems that the keyboard is not included in this version? I look inside the container in /usr/lib and usr/libexec and could not find the weston-keyboard mentioned in this answer: Virtual keyboard in Weston?

It mentions that the keyboard should come with Weston. Do I need to update the tag of the weston-vivante container to get this or is it missing for some other reason. I have not yet made any changes to the weston.ini file.

Thanks, Mike

Greetings @MikeHA,

First of all on i.MX8 it seems the path for weston-keyboard is /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/weston-keyboard. Also it seems like the weston.ini doesn’t need any configuring from the default. Launching the Weston container and looking through the logs I see:

[21:26:14.362] launching '/usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/weston-keyboard'
[21:26:14.362] launching '/usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/weston-keyboard'

I then ran the weston-editor test app and I can see the virtual keyboard pop up.

Best Regards,
