Hi, I use SFOS on community device (FP2) and I don't have jolla-xt9. Therefore I don't have Autocapitalization. Is there an alternative keyboard with Autocapitalization or a library which makes that?

Have you tried installing xt9 from Jolla's repo?,

Try this; pkcon install jolla-xt9 if it doesn't work/install, simply uninstall it pkcon remove jolla-xt9 - of course you try this at your own risk.

It's not work (could not find jolla-xt9). I think it's because xt9 is non free component. Did you think it's possible to recover it from my jolla-1? and if how.

Or if the the xt9 is available for jolla1 in the repo (as it should be), you can just download the rpm with pkcon download /pathwheretodownload/ jolla-xt9. No need to hassle with recreating the rpm package.

Was the error this?

Fatal error: Insufficient space in download directory '/var/cache/pk-zypp-cache/packages/xt9'.

I got this too and I got around it by going to /var/cache/pk-zypp-cache/packages/ and creating the directory xt9 there. But you got your workaround already so I guess there's no need for more help but for future reference if something like this happens again.
