Enable the On-Screen Keyboard on Ubuntu

If you don't have a keyboard attached to your computer or if you just prefer a more modern option, you can use Ubuntu's on-screen keyboard feature to enter text. Dubbed GOK, this dynamic feature includes Direct Selection and Dwell Selection capabilities and as well as word completion.


Use the On-Screen Keyboard on Ubuntu

  • Click the Settings menu > System Settings:

  • Next, go to System > Universal Access:

  • Select the Typing tab, and then switch the On-Screen Keyboard option to ON:


Ubuntu On-Screen Keyboard Terminal Command

Alternatively, you can use a terminal command to activate the on-screen keyboard.
  • To do this, simply open your terminal and type
    $ onboard
    . Relog your system to display the feature.
