Toggle the TouchPad's virtual keyboard in Xecutah 2

Xecutah keyboardXecutah is a great homebrew app by WebOS Internals (available in Preware or webOS Quick Install) that allows you to access the command line interface on your webOS device. However, there are times that you launch it on the TouchPad and the device's virtual keyboard does not automatically appear. Tapping on the screen doesn't help, so it seems as if the app is totally useless without any way to interact with it. Luckily, there is a very simple way to toggle the virtual keyboard by perform a three-figured tap on the screen. As soon as you tap the screen with three figures, the keyboard will appear. To dismiss the keyboard, you can do another three-figured tap on the screen or just press the dismiss key on the bottom-right of the keyboard.

Adam it would be cool if you could find out the same for the terminal app wterm on webOS 2.x.
There is a "phone auxiliary" or "QUERTY" vkeyboard but it only shows 4-5 column keys. Is there a way to see more?

1) Why do you need a virtual keyboard for webOS 2.x?  You have a physical keyboard

2) why not just use Xecutah for webOS 2.x? it works just fine on phones, too
