~mil/sxmo-tickets#438: 
$KEYBOARD setting not working

I did a fresh install of postmarketOS 21.12 with SXMO 1.6.1 de sway.

I add the following to my ~/.profile:

export KEYBOARD="wvkbd-mobintl -H 350 -l full,special"

When I rebooted, I wasn't able to bring up the soft keyboard. The KEYBOARD environment variable was set to svkbd-mobintl.

Am I doing something wrong?

try

export KEYBOARD_ARGS="-H 350 -l full,special"

although not sure where it's getting set to svkbd-mobintl if you're starting sway. You don't have another line in your ~/.profile ?

Thanks, that worked. There was nothing else in my profile to set svkbd-mobintl; maybe it defaults to that if $KEYBOARD doesn't exist.
