hello guys how are you?

i have a convertible notebook and I looking for the commands to enable the automatic show-up option of onboard (and to disabled it) to make a executable script for the tablet mode.

i'm looking also the way to use onboard in the lock screen (after suspension when i disabled the keyboard i can not digit to enter the password and unlock the screen), well, onboard is showing in the lock screen when the automatic show-up is enabled, but, i tried to digit but is someting like there is a glass on top and i can not press any button .

Hi, you can enable auto-show from command line with
$ gsettings set org.onboard.auto-show enabled true
and disable it with
$ gsettings set org.onboard.auto-show enabled false

The behavior at the unlock screen depends a lot on your desktop environment. "someting like there is a glass on top and i can not press any button" hints that you are using GNOME Shell. We can't currently fix this there, but we have a shell extension that attempts to work around this issue. It's still rough, but should mostly do the job.

If you are on latest Ubuntu try
$ sudo apt-get install gnome-shell-extension-onboard
Then launch gnome-shell-extension-prefs and enable "Onboard Indicator".
