    The Knoppix 6.7.1 virtual keyboard challenge.

    .
    You may have noticed at Main Menu>Universal Access>xvkbd that Klaus
    has provided Tom Sato's virtual keyboard, xvkbd.

    I frankly haven't really found an everyday use for it myself.
    I propose that it may represent a hidden challenge that we might all
    engage in, somewhat akin to Liars' poker.

    The challenge is, after calling up xvkbd from the Knoppix menu,
    how many ways in a standard Knoppix 6.7.1 installation can you close
    the virtual keyboard gui, not counting rebooting or restarting X?
    I can think of two.

    If you can't think of even one, then perhaps you'd be interested
    in modifying, as root, line 252 of /etc/X11/Xsession.d/45knoppix
    to read 'xvkbd.nonexitable: false' rather than 'xvkbd.nonexitable: true'.
    That should give you two ways you didn't have before.

    Hi, utu!

    You could issue
    Code:
    killall xvkbd

    Kill it with fire

    Having pored over the internets trying to prevent this from popping up on my kiosk-mode Knoppix setup, I finally caved and just
    Code:
    sudo mv /usr/bin/xvkbd /usr/bin/xvkbd.orig
    and got on with life. Would love something more elegant, but I also like sleep and getting things done.

    @ irongaze
    That was a little more drastic than I had in mind, but thanks.
