on screen keyboark in Arch + window manager (ratpoison)

I have Arch + ratpoison installed on Asus EeePC 900.
It has only 1GB CPU and 1GB Ram and its keyboard is not working well.
I mean some key doesn't print any character at all.
but its trackpad (mousepad) is working perfectly.

So, I need a on-screen keyboard working well to avoid those keys not working.

I have tested xvkbd and florence. They are not working with window manager like ratpoison I think.
they both just appear if I execute them but they can't print any character on leafpad or something else like word processing program.

if I need any patch or configuration, please guide me.
Please anybody help !


Amazing !

For starters, If not many keys of your keyboard are damaged, I would suggest you remap them to other functional (lesser used) keys, using xmodmap or a similar program.

Yeah, I know about xmodmap but I don't want to use it because I have about 5 keys not working well on my keyboard and also some other key is waiting for not working well.
so I just need on-screen keyboard.
