Ubuntu Onboard package

I've fallen in love with the Ubuntu onscreen keyboard Onboard, but since it's an Ubuntu project it's not available in the Debian repos
I was wondering if there would be a way to get a build in the Crunchbang repos?

Re: Ubuntu Onboard package

Sure. Get us the names of the relevant packages and we tell you how to build it.

I've tried manually adding the deb file but it doesn't work correctly

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of onboard:
 onboard depends on python-virtkey (>= 0.60.0); however:
  Package python-virtkey is not installed.
 onboard depends on gir1.2-wnck-3.0; however:
  Package gir1.2-wnck-3.0 is not installed.

neither packages are available in the debian repos
I could go ahead and build each package from source, but my question was more about getting them in the repos.
I've never built .deb files to be distributed, if I used pbuilder to make some .debs, is there a chance of them making them into the #! repositories?

I can't even get this to work. After installing and running, I get a grid of buttons, none of which do anything when pressed.,

If you're the only one who wants the package, then probably never. But, on the other hand, if you present a pre-made package to the maintainer, how could he say no?

According to this site, python-vertkey can be built even for squeeze.. 

https://answers.launchpad.net/virtkey/+question/171613

Here you will see that gir1.2-wnck-3.0 is available for wheezy/testing and sid

http://packages.debian.org/search?keywo … lla-search

My advice would be to install Waldorf, which would have gir1.2-wnck-3.0 available and find out how to build python-vertkey and you would be able to install the app from it's deb source.

Re: Ubuntu Onboard package

Dear Daniel, could you please update me on this subject? I used to love Onboard when I used Lubuntu (no backlit keyboard on this laptop) and a deb that really works would be a great help for me, too!
