Is MeeGo Keyboard conquering GNOME3?

Maliit in GNOME3

You'd probably like me more if I had spend my time testing the upcoming release of MeeGo Tablet UX on this shiny new WeTab (I ♥ Openismus), but Jon couldn't resist to test-drive GNOME3 first. Well, and since we like our virtual keyboard so much, we just had to make it work of course.

Jon also wrote about the features shown in the video.

When is this available to download?

@dan: I am just as excited as you ;-)
@Ollie: Packaging for Fedora is taking a bit longer than anticipated. Nevertheless, our plan is to make it available before the MeeGo Conference in SF, even though it will still contain some rough edges by then (sorry).

Ah thanks for that.

Also will there will be Natty packages for Maliit? I installed meego yesterday and followed the steps found here:


But I could only find a way of showing some sort of applications menu (Widget menu) and not the keyboard itself. Like you have got in this screenshot:


Do the packages not work in Maverick and only in Lucid?

@Ollie: Well, I currently don't run Natty so can't really do the packaging ... I could of course try a blind attempt.

Will probably do that once I update the Ubuntu packages again.
