Ok so i'm in need of a virtual keyboard. I installed onboard, but when I try and open in it I get this message...

 ** (onboard:1573): WARNING **: Error retrieving accessibility bus address: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.a11y.Bus was not provided by any .service files
12:00:01.098 WARNING Config: mousetweaks GSettings schema not found, mousetweaks integration disabled.

** (onboard:1573): WARNING **: Error retrieving accessibility bus address: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.a11y.Bus was not provided by any .service files

** (onboard:1573): ERROR **: AT-SPI: COuldn't connect to accessibility bus. Is at-spi-bus-launcher running?
Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped)

(PS) I've been copying and pasting letters from here lol https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_alphabet

  • I would like to know which version of lubuntu. in the main lubuntu menu at the left hand corener there is a character map which will allow you to copy and paste. Also this might be a bug and do you have the mousetweaks package installed. I installed on 15.04 without mousetweaks and got it to work. – ianorlin Jun 23 '15 at 2:40

I have just met with the same problem and I have a solution.

My onboard keyboard was working until I went to play with the settings. In particular the settings regarding word suggestions

Launch "dconf Editor" Applications -> System Tools -> dconf Editor

go to org -> onboard -> typing assistance -> word-suggestions

untick the "enabled" checkbox and close dconf Editor.

onboard should start now.

  • Thanks, it works!! So, does it mean I cannot use the word-suggestions option? – Yan King Yin Sep 4 '17 at 17:17

Open Onboard Settings which can be found in Preferences. In the General tab, make sure Auto-show when editing text is unticked.

Also if Start Onboard hidden is ticked, you can find the onboard icon on the panel to open the virtual keyboard.
