Onscreen keyboard with KDM?
So, I've been playing around with a tablet pc. Since there is no physical keyboard unless it's docked, I've got florence running on login. Unfortunately, I can't find any way to get a onscreen keyboard to allow me to login to KDM, so I have to dock the tablet, login, then undock. Or set autologin (which I don't want to do, since it has multiple users on) or passwordless logins (my account has sudo access so I don't want to do that either). Are there any onscreen keyboards that will integrate and work with KDM, or anything I'm just missing in KDM that will allow me to do the same thing? Thanks.

Add an onscreen keyboard to KDM

Step 1: sudo vi /etc/kde/kdm/Xsetup

Step 2: add xvkdb & to the last line of /etc/kde/kdm/Xsetup

Step 3: save /etc/kde/kdm/Xsetup by typing :wq

Step 4: sudo vi /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc

Step 5: change UseTheme=true to UseTheme=false (on line 443)

Step 6: save /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc by typing :wq
