I have just installed Ubuntu 14.4 LTS on my Gigabyte s1080 touchscreen tablet and I am unable to use the tablet without a keyboard plugged in. Is there a way to activate the on screen keyboard?

I have installed Florence Virtual Keyboard however when I boot up the computer it doesn't popup on the screen to login nor does it appear when I click on a text field.

How do I set the onscreen keyboard as default so it appears when I press on a text field?

And if possible (not at worried if I can't) there is a button on the side that opens the onscreen keyboard, it is possible to link the onscreen keyboard to this button (was default with windows).

Any advice would be great.
