Touchscreen login from lockscreen

When first logging in using only touchscreen, I can touch the titlebar and turn on the onboard keyboard. However, when the lock-screen is presented, no such option appears to be available. I can see the machine name on the left and a padlock on the right and that's all.

How do I get onboard to appear at the lock-screen so that I can touch the relevant keys for the password?

Can you tell us what the machine is and/or spec.

Please also edit your Forum Profile to indicate the edition of ZorinOS you are using, e.g. Pro, Core, Lite etc. That will avoid us asking each time you post. Thanks.

This is very helpful. Please do so.
In the meantime, looking at the posting history:

@bruceax , can you please check if you have the following installed?

  • light-locker
  • xflock4
  • xscreensaver
  • another screensaver app

Light-Locker can interfere and if installed, can be removed.
Using the default xfce screensaver instead of xscreensaver may also be what you need. Please see here:

Under Activate Screensaver on the above page, note the entry for On Screen Keyboard Command. Your command will be

onboard -e
