Gnome 3.36 OSK (F32 Beta)

Hello everybody,

I’m having a problem with the onscreen keyboard on F32 Beta Gnome Wayland.

When using Wayland native programs, keyboard auto-show works when clicking on a text field but on Xwayland programs(such as Google Chrome), there is no way to open the onscreen keyboard. On previous version of Gnome(3.34), I was using an extension named “On Screen Keyboard Button” to place a keyboard button on the top bar. Ever since upgrading to 3.36 version, the extension stopped working.

My question is that how do you guys manage the onscreen keyboard, because I don’t see a way to open it manually so I cannot use it on Xwayland programs.

Thank you

Hello @makaveli: welcome to Fedora! Please take a minute to look at the introductory posts in #start-here if you’ve not had a chance yet.

This certainly sounds like a bug, and I can reproduce it on F32 here also. Could you please file one against Gnome-shell?
