I am working with an application using a touch screen. For this, I need Onboard (the on-screen keyboard) to open from Ubuntu's startup time with a fixed width and height. I also need to get a reserved screen position for placing Onboard (which means that Onboard should not be in front of any application windows). I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Onboard was not installed in my system. I installed it by typing
sudo apt-get install onboard in the terminal. It doesn't work properly. Now the system shows Onboard when I type
onboard in the terminal. Onboard closes itself when I close the terminal.
