Maybe we're even able to re-use some existing Android implementations to display a virtual keyboard.

Hello everyone,

if one uses a tablet/phablet that only has a touchscreen as input, there's no way to either select the OS to be booted or to unlock a fully encrypted system.

Because there are many discussions about Grub and Touchscreen support in other distribution support communities, this should bug should be a tracking bug to discuss and implement possible solutions.

I already have seen Grub modifications to use the volume hardware keys as input as BIOS vendor UEFI adjustments to display a full onscreen keyboard usable via the touchscreen.
