Gboard on E5 play

Recently I started to get the message

"Gboard cannot open

Wrong Gboard version for your device

Please uninstall & downlaod correct version from Google Playstore"

This does not help as cannot uninstall it - can only delete updates

This cures the problem, but Gboard then updates itself & back to square one

Done clear cache & data but no help at all

Worked OK until about a week ago

Don't know if it is a real problem as have a keyboard of some form for typing

But no reference to Gboard in Settings or any keyboard for that matter

How do I know if i am using Gboard? (I think I am)

Re: Gboard on E5 play

Playstore/3 bars top left/Settings/Auto-Update apps and Disable.You will still be prompted from time to time of app updates but can decide if you want the update(If it's working,don't fix it is my rule except my Anti-virus app).

 

 

Settings/Apps/Google Keyboard/Disable if you want to disable the Google keyboard but make sure you have another keyboard installed or you will have to re-enable it.

 

I like,"Perfect Keyboard",

 

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=demo.inputmethod.latin.perfectkeyboard&hl=en_GB

 

It allows me to increase the size of the keys for my big Fingers Smiley Happy

 

You might also be able to download Gboard separately and install it if you wish,can't remember,

Please give Kudos or correct answer where a pplicable.

Hi Porphyrius
Thanks, I have switched auto-update off just to see what happens.
Perfect Keyboard seems to be a demo unless you pay £3.09 for it. As I am tight I will wait a bit
