I hate to say it, but it looks like, no, there's no native, virtual keyboard in Linux Lite. That makes sense: it's Lite.

Onboard is an option, but it looks... mmm... unfinished:its appearance doesn't match the rest of Linux Lite, even looking at its available themes.

I've also had a problem with it that resulted in a constant stream of <CR><LF>s (that may be just \n being sent in the Linux environment) being sent when opening up a terminal session. I removed Onboard, and I'm going to reinstall it to see if it's still there.

If you know of alternate, plugin, addons for hosting a virtual keyboard, please list them here. Thanks.

Oooh! Never though about checking the virtual keyboard option.
That would be nice tu use sometimes, especially if it works in the login screen. (i.e. no keyboard needed).

Please get back if you find a good replacement... interested. ;)
