Which keyboard (AZERTY) do you use with writing gesture (écriture gestuelle)? I have the Samsung S9. And for the moment I am nit really happy with the keyboards I try…
Sadly, there is no really good open source keyboard with gesture support.
You could try AnySoftKeyboard, they have a beta version of gesture support that you can turn on in the settings.
I tried this (with German QWERTZ) and it is ok-ish. I definitely had to swipe very precisely, but I’m no fast typer in general, so your mileage may vary.
You might like Openboard which I discovered recently. I has support for a few limited gestures like dragging on the spacebar to move the cursor or dragging on the delete keyer to select text to delete. As it’s purely open-source and has a a fair number of contributing developers, you could probably put in a request for other gestures. They are planning to add some in the near future. Excellent language support!
Thank you Grendel. Yes, I have tried it yet. Not so bad but, the only thing I miss in my former smartphone and OS is Gboard…
You might consider using gboard while denying any network connection of the app. So this might be an acceptable sacrifice.
Hey, sorry, didn’t saw your answer!!! Yes thanks. I finally put gboard (shame shame shame) but didn’t deny network connection.
Thanks a lot!
How do you deny network connection for Gboard?
I installed it and then went to App permissions, but there was no option to deny Internet access.
I don’t know if I have done the proper thing but…
From french translation…
Apps/Gboard/data usage ?? (consommation de donnees), I have switch off wifi and mobiles data.
… ?? Could someone valid this?
It’s correct what @Mybass wrote.
Just to be more precise:
Settings–>apps-> gboard-> mobile data & Wi-Fi
Disable “allow network access”
Hmm, I must not have a recent enough build to get that option.
Running oreo on a Samsung S5
Maybe it’s only available in the -p- and -q- releases. Is there only the oreo release available for S5 (EDIT: according the list at https://doc.e.foundation/devices/ pie or q should be available for S5)?
I used AnySoftKey for a little bit however the glide typing is as ask concurs is clunky, slow and in beta so I’m using gboard.
/e/os 0.17, Samsung, Galaxy S9, SM-G960F
downloaded gboard from /e/apps, put the phone in airplane mode (paranoia), took the following steps
settings>apps & notifications>gboard>data usage>turn off the toggle for “wifi data” and “cellular data” as @Mybass and @ff2u pointed out.
settings>system>language & input>virtual keyboard>gboard>advanced>turn off the toggle for “share usage statistics”
restarted the phone and turned off airplane mode. Happy typing all.
