eekboard 0.90.4 released

I released eekboard 0.90.4 and built it in F-16 and F-15. Major changes from the last release include theme support ported from GNOME-Shell. You can now customize colors, fonts, and border widths, etc. by editing a CSS file.

Here are some screen shots:

The default theme is located at /usr/share/eekboard/themes/default.css. I added --theme option to eekboard-xml to test themes easily:

$ eekboard-xml --model=kinesis --dump > keyboard.xml
$ eekboard-xml --theme custom-theme.css --load keyboard.xml

This release also adds several options to eekboard-desktop-client.

# To draw keyboard in full-screen mode
$ eekboard-desktop-client --fullscreen
# To use "kinesis" keyboard geometry
$ eekboard-desktop-client --model=kinesis

  1. nice one.
    an option to center the keyboard in fullscreen mode would be nice. margins and paddings didnt seem to work in the CSS file.

    and … maybe a button to move the keyboard up and down in fullscreen mode to be able to select input fields beneath it.

    otherwhise … realy good work :)
