Has anyone tried the keyboard from Jimmy Huguet already?

yes, I've tried that, but after update it disappears and I hadn't time to copy it back again.

Yep, I had/have a working copy of it somewhere, but honestly, at 47 years old, I'm too stuck in my ways to even contemplate learning a new way to type - stick in the mud?, yep!, that's me!

Also, see here, a post from May, making this post a possible duplicate;

Actually it should be the HUGET keyboard_s_ because there are several:

  • Ease (Italian + English predictive input),
  • 8Pen (English predictive input),
  • Loopen (English predictive input)

They work well but require some adaptation time. I recommand to give it a go: easy to install and fun to try. This question might be a duplicate of

loopen and 8pen have an italian layout too which was made by me...

i personally use the ease keybord because it's very good and i can make almost 60% less mistakes with that rather than with the qwerty... the 8pen keyboard is very good too and even less errors prone but the send button is not working at the moment so i'm sticking with the ease for now... by the way since i've used all the keyboards i can say that ease as a medium learning curve, the 8 pen has an high lerning curve, and the loopen has a very high lerning curve, but in the end you will see the results... (and by the way they are very unlike, in perfect jolla style ;) )
