On screen keyboard

I have Manjaro loaded on a Surface 3 (not pro) and I cant get the on screen keyboard to pop up when i disconnect the keyboard. Everything else works fine and even the touch screen works, sort of. But no way to type anything in without the on screen keyboard. Is there a way to get this fixed

What edition of Manjaro?

In KDE you need to install maliit-keyboard to get the onscreen keyboard working.
