Virtual keyboard solution on Volumio 3?

I have an idea… What if you could use your phone and a bluetooth keyboard app to type on the RasPi. Would there be any way to do this?

You can always add a keyboard or even a virtual keyboard.

Oh, I saw this post and thought it would be impossible:


Uhh… I installed the extension but I still don’t see any keyboard even when I’m clicking on the search box

did you reboot and perform the language settings?
And your system has an attached LCD screen?

What language setting?

for your keyboard, this should pop up after a reboot

Even after a reboot, keyboard doesnt appear

then the extention didn’t install correctly, as it’s working for me and others.

I reinstalled the extension and unplugged my physical keyboard. And a Virtual keyboard settings screen appeared!

Guess in your first attempt, you let the physical keyboard attached?

Yes. It seems to work now. But, how do I get to Volumio? On boot, chromium opens but I constantly see the Virtual keyboard settings

just confirm your language and it will go to the volumio interface

How exactly do I do that? I clicked my layout in the chosen layouts but I’m still there

reboot? Can’t recall I need to do something else.

Nope still there

Oh. I had to press the > button
