I've asked this in the qt-forum (
http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/19912/) but am asking here again,
since I didnt get any response there...

How do I enable tty keyboard for linux in Qt5 which has only QPA.

Previously we were on Qt4.8.2 QWS, where we used to configure Qt with
-qt-kbd-linuxinput -qt-kbd-tty and exportQWS_KEYBOARD and QWS_MOUSE env
variables to the respective char devices in /dev. What is the equivalent of
this in Qt5?

Previously we were on directfb platform. Now we are evaluating both
directfbegl and eglfs.

Looks like it might be easier to enable this support in directfb as it
already has the necessary eventHandlers, grab etc.

It would be really helpful if you could provide your input on both fronts.

Many thanks for your time & patience
