- Guido Günther: When splitting phosh-osk-stub out of #phosh one of my goals was "use it from day one". This required to hack in a virtual-keyboard driver so Electron apps (and other apps that can't deal with text-input-unstable-v3) can fall back to "emulated key presses" instead of using an input-method.Prompted by input from Kai Lüke who (rightly) pointed out that the German layout was missing symbols in virtual-keyboard mode I revisited the situation and we can now handle more languages:1️⃣ /2️⃣
