Ok it seems it does work after restart. I only tried to kill matchbox-wm
and start xfwm4 (and matchbox-keyboard-toggle) but then it doesn't work.
Now i tried to replace the wm within the zhone-session file and rebooted
and the keyboard comes when pressing the key. :)
Now i only have the problem left that the keyboard window isn't on top
all the time and some system windows are above the keyboard. So i can't
type anything into these windows because i can't get the keyboard on top
