#590 Long $KEYBOARD won't toggle closed 6 months ago

Ticket created by ~forestcreature on ~mil/sxmo-tickets

When setting KEYBOARD="wvkbd-custom" in ~/.config/sxmo/profile, the call to pkill in close() in /usr/bin/sxmo_keyboard.sh fails due to the resolved path exceeding a 15 character limit for the argument to pkill. Since double quotes are shown elsewhere, e.g. in the tips and tricks wiki page section on $KEYBOARD_ARGS, this is an easy mistake and the reason for the error is non-obvious to a naive user.

pkill with the -f flag yields the correct behaviour, as does unquoted KEYBOARD=wvkbd-custom (not resolved path: <15 characters). Perhaps a warning comment in ~/.config/sxmo/profile would alert a user to the issue.
