How to cleanly kill Ubuntu onboard keyboard with keystroke from the onboard keyboard

So I found the answer: https://bugs.launchpad.net/onboard/+bug/1032042

Once you have onboard 0.99 installed and running, you can execute the following two commands to show and hide the keyboard respectively without having to kill the process:

dbus-send --type=method_call --dest=org.onboard.Onboard
/org/onboard/Onboard/Keyboard org.onboard.Onboard.Keyboard.Show

dbus-send --type=method_call --dest=org.onboard.Onboard
/org/onboard/Onboard/Keyboard org.onboard.Onboard.Keyboard.Hide

This solved all my problems in a way better than just killing it.
