i'm working with yocto project on the imx6 processor. I created the sato image where a GNOME desktop manager is used. On the top bar there are:

- Home button 

- Change Windows button

- Mouse indicator

- Time


I would also like to insert the keyboard indicator button, whit the possibility of pressing that butto to enable or disable the virtual keyboard. (fig.1 What do i have, fig.2 what i would like)

I don't know if this option is already present, but i have already created a script (with matchbox command) that make the enable/disable toggle of the virtual keyboard, but i managed to insert it as an "app" and not in the top bar (fig.3 keyboard toggle as an app).


If i connect an external keyboard in the situation of "fig.1", the keyboard function normally but without indicator.

My priority is to integrate a button keyboard indicator in the top bar that enable or disable the virtual keyboard.

Anyone can help me?
