Raspberry Pi Touchscreen Wifi Interface For Touchscreen

Thu Jul 18, 2019 3:19 pm

I just got a Raspberry Pi 3+ and I've connected it a touchscreen. The issue is I need a keyboard to do things like select wifi and enter the password. Is there a GUI interface for the touchscreen that would show a virtual keyboard for text inputs so a keyboard is not needed?

Description: extensible and scalable virtual keyboard for X
 Florence is an extensible scalable virtual keyboard for X.

 It is useful when a real keyboard is unusable either because of a handicap,
 disease, broken keyboard or tablet PC; but when a pointing device is usable.

 Florence stays out of your way: it appears on the screen only when needed.
 An auto-click functionality also help people having difficulties to click
 buttons.
