Fixing Florence

I mentioned the other day I had a couple of problems with Florence, the touch screen keyboard I use with the RPF official 7″ touch display.  One was a whopper – touching any of her keys caused her to vanish permanently.  That’s now fixed by this installation:

sudo apt-get install at-spi2-core

The other problem was getting Florence onto the Application Launch Bar. In the main menu she appears under “Universal Access” but this isn’t in the “Application Launch Bar Settings”.  I found the solution on StackExchange, with one minor tweak.  Where it mentions changes in

$HOME/.config/lxpanel/LXDE/panels/panel

you need to make those changes here:

$HOME/.config/lxpanel/LXDE-pi/panels/panel

Finally, if you want to adopt the same Raspberry coloured keys as I have, add a custom colour of #D62B4F.  This is the colour of the official Raspberry Pi logo.
