i have been using literki as the main keyboard now since the new
version with mouse support got released. saying this already implies "i
like it" :), thank you Michal!

and i am very happy about the way literki works with transparency - for
example with midori or actually any app: if you need the keyboard on
and off, freerunner is simply too slow redrawing the screen while the
application needs to get resized to make space for a keyboard.

a couple of things: 

- if startup of literki could be changed - now a yellow rectangle is
  drawn on the screen that looks bad - could literki start with some
  coordinates that are off the screen?

- for the future, integration with illume would be a logical step and
  ideally a button to switch between transparent overlay keyboard and
  windowed keyboard (perhaps restart would be needed, i am not sure)

thanks once again
