Installing a keyboard in Developer fails with “Keyman Desktop is not installed” › Installing a keyboard in Developer fails with “Keyman Desktop is not installed”   2017-02-27 19:09:52.217
Jukka K. Korpela
I have installed Keyman Desktop 9.0 and Keyman Developer 8.0 (using evaluation version). After creating a keyboard in Developer, when I try to use the “Install” button under “Compile Keyboard”, I get the error message “Keyman Desktop is not installed”. Yet Keyman Desktop is installed and running and works. I suppose I am doing something wrong, but what? I’m using Windows 10, 32-bit.

John, a couple of questions:

1. Can you let me know which build of Keyman Developer you are using?

2. Could you email a copy of the keyboard source files which cause this problem to suppport@keyman.com so we can test and try and reproduce the issue here?

Hello,

I am using the Amharic fonts and I have hard time to script the word አዕምሮ. After I write አ to write ዕ when I press e twice it changes the first letter አ to ኧ. I tried reading the manual and using ' to keep the letter not to change with the vowels but it does not work for me. I would like to write without any interruption and editing. So, if you have any idea please help...
Missing dead key functionality › Missing dead key functionality   2017-02-24 01:15:59.890

Finnish Basic does not contain dead key functionality that is needed for typing a large number of characters that can be typed on a normal Finnish keyboard with normal software as shipped e.g. with Windows. This applies to the dead key for the accents ´ and ` (needed to produce e.g. é and è) and the other dead key for ¨~^. This means that Finnish Basic cannot even produce the tilde ~.

The current Finnish national standard for keyboards, SFS 5966, has a much larger dead key functionality as well as added characters produced using AltGr.

Let me correct my statement, please. The application doesn't hang however the popop doesn't get closed and the import also doesn't get carried out. It doesn't import fully. Partially it does.

Yes, this keyboard could also be used on an Android tablet; you can create these keyboards using Keyman Developer 9 (http://keyman.com/developer)

I would like to know if I create or someone helps me create a keyboard for Iau in Papua Indonesia, can that key board also be used on an android tablet?

Our needs for an Iau keyboard mainly require substituting Unicode superscript numbers 2-9 plus hyphen for the numbers on a regular keyboard and then putting those regular numbers somewhere else like shift +alt or cont +alt number key. We don't need any other symbols.

Because of how the Windows keyboard registration is designed, this must be done by an administrator. Once the keyboard is installed, it can be enabled or disabled by a user in Keyman Configuration.

I am trying to install the desktop application and a keyboard on multiple computers that have multiple users from a remote computer over a network. I have successfully installed the application but the keyboard seems to require administration privileges to install. The users do not have that privilege. Is there a workaround to get this to work?

In terms of working around the issue in your keyboard, you will need to create rules that disambiguate desktop and web builds:, for example:
:
$keymanonly: + [LCTRL K_W] > 'LCtrl W'
$keymanweb: + [CTRL K_W] > 'Control W'

Until recently, most browsers did not distinguish between left and right ctrl/alt, so there was no way to detect them from Javascript. I haven't researched the current support level for this feature in browsers. You could submit an issue at https://github.com/tavultesoft/keymanweb/issues to request that we add support for these flags in KeymanWeb on those browsers that support l/r ctrl/alt.

In order to create an installer which bundles Keyman Desktop, you'll need to find the keymandesktop90.msi file. This is included in the Keyman Desktop 9 installer downloadable from http://keyman.com/

Once you have downloaded it, you'll need to run the installer with command line parameter -x, for example:
keymandesktop-9.0.508.0.exe -x c:\temp
Where c:\temp should be replaced with the path you want to extract the installer files to. Once you have run this command, you will find the .msi file in that folder, which you can then select in the Package Editor next to the Compile Installer button.
