Patch: Hide word suggestions

Your rating: None Average: 5 (3 votes)

Hide word suggestions patch. The original patch by schturman is unmaintained and not working on SailfishOS

This replaces schturman's patch, please uninstall his patch before installing this one.

Built and tested on Jolla1 SFOS on UK keyboard.

I like to try and keep my patches simple and clutter free.

There are no settings.

When this patch is applied, you will no longer see word suggestions and the keyboard height is reduced.

The keyboard height is increased when the clipboard has text, when clipboard is cleared, the keyboard height is reduced again.

..oO((donations welcomed))Oo..

* Added support for landscape keyboard when in splitview

I failed to install this patch. I've got official SailfishX on Xperia X Compact (patched img).

It says: 

checking file usr/share/maliit/plugins/com/jolla/Xt9InputHandler.qml

Hunk #1 FAILED at 86.

Hunk #2 FAILED at 121.

2 out 2 hunks FAILED

checking file usr/share/maliit/plugins/com/jolla/TopItem.qml

Unreserved patch detected! Ignore -R? [n] Apply anyway? [n]

Skipping patch

1 out of 1 hunk ignored

And then continues some similar error about Dry running patch.

Any suggestion?

sorry, I don't know, I don't have a Sony device to test with. I have posted a question on the patchmanager thread on to ask the author what the output is actually telling us. I will answer you when I know more.

Off the top of my head, it seems the patch cannot find the 2 files or they are not where the patch expects them to be. I can only assume you do have have jolla-xt9 installed on your device or you wouldn't be wanting to use my patch!

I'll keep you posted, thanks.

 Thanks for care. Yes, I've got Xt9 installed.

But no problems, I will wait, maybe I will found solution.

Also, thanks for care about fork-app.

It's good, this comunity still lives ...

Thank you very much! Might add jolla-xt9 as a dependency as it can't be applied without it.
