On-screen keyboard support in Egmde

Following the recent announcement of On Screen Keyboard [OSK] support for Ubuntu Frame I have updated egmde to support using the same OSK (Squeekboard).

Assuming you’ve already installed egmde, all you need to use the OSK is:

  1. (For the next week) update egmde to the candidate channel
    sudo snap refresh --candidate egmde
  2. Install Ubuntu Frame OSK
    sudo snap install ubuntu-frame-osk
  3. Add Ubuntu Frame OSK to egmde’s shell-components. Edit ~/.config/egmde.config to contain (among your other options) something like:
    # Adds the snapped swaybg and waybar to the desktop environment

When you are running Egmde after this, the OSK will appear whenever focus is on an input field.
