This extension is responsible for pop-up the vkb, so if you are using Om
2008.8 the qtopia keyboard will appear, in FSO the E keyboard appear and so
on, the extension pop-up any vkb present in the system, if you don't have a
vkb the program don't crash but you can't configure keys or use the keyboard
profile. You have a better suggestion for that ?
