I'm Benno-007 there. Maybe we are more XMir users in the next time.

Nice modifications with the $1/ $2.

It should only close the keyboard, isn't it so?

fluxbox fixed that for me, too. But it's a little bit tricky. I start
the session in high mode and then rotate it to landscape before the
windows are loaded. Many buttons of xvkbd are black then but wenn I move
the window a little bit around and type something (with black buttons),
all it's fine.

Here had someone success with it:

Thanks for this idea. I have made a symlink for the apt-cache and so on
to the SDcard.

But it's also usable for more then one maximized windows on different
workspaces. You can move them to the right or left and the workspace of
a programm will chance.

Does this work for you? This costs me a lot of time and manpage reading
but the hints didn't work until I bond the common and german file
together. This worked perfectly.
