Hey saberaltria

I made an emoji based keyboard with Finnish/Swedish layout. Is it okay if I share it?

Thank You

Hi saberaltria,

I have a problem with shift key, I can't lock it, not on your English kb and not on my. Can you fix it please ?


I created two keyboards with color emoji based on your keyboard.
1. Simple Hebrew
2. Triple keyboard (Hebrew-English-Russian) with switcher.

Can I post them on openrepos ?

It's a lovely keyboard! Is there a chance to have also the Italian plugin? I can provide you the layout file, if you want to.

There's a bug in Dolphin keyboard, it does not honour Qt.ImhNoPredictiveText

This leads to annoying behaviour when a validator is placed on a TextField, which doesn't trigger valid state until the textfield is selected explicitly.


            TextField {

                errorHighlight: activeFocus && !acceptableInput
                inputMethodHints: Qt.ImhNoAutoUppercase | Qt.ImhNoPredictiveText

                validator: RegExpValidator { regExp: /^[A-Za-z0-9][A-Za-z0-9_]{2,20}$/ }
                EnterKey.enabled: acceptableInput
                EnterKey.iconSource: "image://theme/icon-m-enter-accept"

Would it be possible to use the same emojis like with the emoji keyboard?

I made a german layout however I was only able to change the language of the spell correction by editing layouts/Xt9Handler.qml, is there a way to do this without doing this?

Would it be possible to disable the cursors?

Also it would be nice if you would publish the sources

Awesome keyboard, I wish it was the default one. 

A small request, along with the comma and period, could you please add the question mark and exclamation mark to that area? It would be helpful :)  Thanks

Fantastic keyboard & the Emoji option works very well. Jolla should implement such things... but happy that there are such great devs who provide suck amazing software.

Btw: I can confirm what others already wrote. If you already have the other Emoji-Keyboard installed, you need to remove it first.

and just one question,how to remove background photos/revert to default ?

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Which package you installed?

What procedure you did?

Most of you said it doesn't work. :( But it works for me...

So I need more details in order to help you :P

heubergen's picture

Doesn't work here, either.

Can install the app successfully and also select it as primary in the settings app.

But after that I can not use it. Just doesn't work.

saberaltria's picture

Yup, just fixed today. Maybe you can try it once again. :)
