OKBoard (a.k.a. Magic Keyboard) is a gesture based keyboard that allow single stroke typing. Usage is explained in this video. English, French and Dutch are supported without the need for additional packages, other language resources are available in separate packages, e.g. for Swedish (okb-lang-sv). It should work on any Sailfish phone with screen size from 4.5" to 5".

Do not use other third party keyboards at the same time (unless they are just simple layouts for new languages).

Source code: http://git.tuxfamily.org/okboard/okb-engine.git/ and http://git.tuxfamily.org/okboard/okb-keyboard.git/. Instructions for adding new languages are included in README.md files (latin alphabet only at the moment)

If you get an error message about missing dbus-python rpm file when installing, just run "pkcon refresh" as root and try again.

You could add a description of what does this actually do for the ones not familiar with the concept. I really have no idea how does this work and I even tried it on my phone my didn't notice any difference.

First of all big thanks for releasing this, this was my long time waited :D

I seem to have issues enbaling it as every time I close the application it gets disabled but even when it's enabled i can't seem to get it to work.

 

What are the steps to get it working?
