I don't really want to autologin as pi but it seems like nothing hooks the GUI keyboard when the cursor is over a text field like it does on Android. (Gee, pirate something from Android?) The cursor changes to a text cursor, so on pointer click bring up the keyboard if the cursor is text?
I just got the display a few hours ago and I'm still trying to get used to it. Still trying to figure out how to click on things. I've used Android stuff enough, including a VNC client I guess I expected this to work more like. There's a mode where you end up with an offset between where your finger is and where the pointer is, so you can move the pointer and still see what you're clicking on. It was so natural I didn't really think about what it was doing. I think the app was "Real VNC" or something like that. Also did nice zooming. I had Debian on a phone but the only way to use X was with a vnc server on the Debian side and a VNC client app on the Android side. Seemed easier to use than this.
Also I use the app called Hacker's Keyboard, which might be open source but of course Android isn't really X so it might not be adaptable.
Well, I'm watching screensavers anyway.
