3B+ and official screen - keyboard?

Sun Apr 08, 2018 3:42 pm

Hi - I have just got the new Pi 3B+ and connected up the official 7" inch screen but am having no luck in getting an on-screen keyboard accessory up and running. I have tried to "get and install" matchbox and florence but just get messages saying they cannot be found. Any ideas how I can get an on-screen keyboard up and working on the latest Pi? Thanks..

Hi.

You have not said how you tried to install matchbox but a cache search shows it is available.

so I suggest you try this at a command line or in a terminal window

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install matchbox-keyboard
then once installed reboot your pi, you should then find keyboard under accessories > keyboard
