I'm the developer of SOK, which is now being rebranded to onBoard.
I have come across the issues that Bill has mentioned and I think he
is right that XEvie is the only proper solution.
That said it is possible to work around the grabbing issues simply by
grabbing the pointer for a while after every key press. This is messy
and breaks things like alt-tab and alt-f for the file menu etc. For a
lot of users this is not a major flaw.
With SOK I have been following a zero configuration policy. A user
should be able to fire up SOK and use it straight away.
I havn't yet examined XEvie in detail. If it is not possible to use
it with zero configuration it shall not be used in SOK.
A KDE port of SOK should be possible. I know cairo can be used with
qt. I don't know if kde has a drop in replacement for gconf. I would
be happy to do some work post SoC to make SOK more desktop neutral.
