Disabling the Caribou onscreen keyboard

When using a touchscreen, GNOME 3 automatically enables the onscreen keyboard everytime it detects the cursor to be in a text-input field, e.g. the GNOME-Terminal.

I didn't find a sane way to disable this behavior, but rather a hackish workaround.

First, create the the respective parent directory and the following file. This is acts as a dummy-layout for the caribou onscreen keyboard.

FILE /usr/share/caribou/layouts/off/us.xml
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<layout xmlns:xi="">

Next, select the off keyboard layout.

user $gsettings set keyboard-type off
