New keyboard on bottom of desktop

Asked by James Musser on 2012-10-31

I upgraded a few days ago and found a keyboard on the bottom of the desktop. Can click on it with password and the desktop is created... or I can key in the paddword on the lapyop keyboard just like before. I do not need the new short keyboard on the bottom of the screen. How can I delete it?? Does anyone else find this keyboard on their screen??

Thanks for the answer. Below is the output you asked me to get. I

 How can I delete it?? sudo-delete onboard??
