Do you know how to call for the "onboard" keybord ?
Sometimes it appears when using applications.
But if i close it, then i don't know how to retrieve it.
Is there a keyboard shortcut to call for it ?

Sorry, I do not use onboard. My tools only start a onscreen keyboard if the device goes tablet mode, see /usr/lib/fjbtndrv/switch-vkeyboard.sh. But it should be possible to define a custom hotkey for onboard, but this depends on your desktop environment.
Thanks a lot for this very useful tools.
I neither use a real keyboard with my tablet. I only use your virtual keyboard, so my idea of a keyboard shortcut is quite stupid.
Anyway, my problem is : sometimes, i make a mistake and click the wrong tab in the upper right corner of the onboard (the "x" icon). So i don't reduce the application to the main bar, but instead i close the onboard application. How to get it again ? Until now, i have to de-rotate the screen of my tablet and rotate it again to start the tool again, so the onboard comes again.
I tried a click on /usr/lib/fjbtndrv/switch-vkeyboard.sh, but with no success.
Any suggestion would be very welcome. Otherwise, i will train myself to click the correct icon "_".

I have worked out set ups for several slate tablets I've owned, including ways to deal with this problem. I'll give you links rather than the answer here as you may be interested in some of the other solutions as well:
I'm not the developer of the onscreen keyboards, my tools only start cellwriter, onboard or xvkbd, depending on what is installed. Cellwriter has a tray icon, so reopen is simple. Onboard and xvkbd do not have this feature, as far as I know. But it should be possible to start it from the startmenu or from a shoutcut icon on the panel.
But you are right, that could be handled better. I'll see what I can do.
