Unfortunately, I will never compromise the security of a PC by leaving it "naked" so to speak. I would like to stress the importance of having a good password which could prove a deterant
I have just come back to KDE after KDE dropped 3 and started on the more advanced 4. Finally after all these years that I have been using gnome I cannot believe that KDE has not got a way to engage a virtual keyboard. I really like KDE and I hope someone has a workout for engaging a virtual DT on the login screen.
Using auto-login and not having a password are two different things. I've been using auto-login forever and have a 10 digit password and never compromised my machine. Any administrative management on my part always requires me typing in the password, except for the logging in part.
If you have more than one person that you don't want to login locally, that would be a concern, but since only me and my wife have access to our home computer it's not a problem. Auto-login will not have any effect as far trying to remote access the computer.
Good luck in your quest, hope someone comes up with an answer for a virtual keyboard.
