What is the equivalence to AHK in Linux?

bourne/bash or perl/python/php? no, not really... rexx? maybe...

But I don't think there is anything really comparible to AutoHotkey on *nix...

That is strange, I haven't found anything either... Are there any plans of converting AHK to Linux?

I never used it, but I remember a web page that described how to pop up a cheat sheet in Linux. By pressing a certian key combination, a wndow popped up to show the chording keymap for the Twiddler. Seem to remember there were a couple of parts of getting it to work.

Try a google search with some terms like Linux, Twiddler, I think it may have used xmodmap, etc. Try the comp.sys.wearables newsgroup or the wear-hard maillist archive.

Hi Community,

Someone told me, this one might be a solution for Linux:

http://wiki.tcl.tk/android

Problem could be the inhomogeneity of the different Window Managers.

Best regards,

Depending on what you need it for, "Expect* is a pretty good automation tool for communications.

Some of the folks here have got it to do some desktop interactive stuff, but that's not it's primary purpose. But it's pretty flexible nonetheless. It may be what you need.

Hi Community,

The most important Linux-GUI-Scripting-Tool:
http://www.tcl.tk/

Here a Linux-Macro-Tool for recording and replaying keyboard and mouse events on an X server:
http://home.sch.bme....eresztg/xmacro/

Here is a tool to manage X-windows:
http://www.burtonini...uters/devilspie

And here another one:
http://sweb.cz/tripie/utils/wmctrl/

Here is a program that allows you to launch shell commands with your keyboard or your mouse under X Window:
http://hocwp.free.fr.../xbindkeys.html

Here a FVWM related GUI Scripting Tool:
http://www.fvwm.org/.../FvwmScript.php

trans-platform scripting language:
http://regina-rexx.sourceforge.net/

Perhaps this might be useful too:

Best regards.

Okay, I know absolutely nothing about coding, and very little yet about AHk, although I would sure like to have AHk on Linux.

Someone did just point me at this project over at SourceForce, which seems to be an implementation of the sort of low-level keyboard interception that would be necessary to make AHk or an AHk clone work universally in Linux of all flavors running all GUIs: http://sourceforge.n...cts/kbd-mangler

If anyone knows of anything close to AHk on Linux or of anyone who would be inclined to make a stab at a port, I would dearly love to know.

I'm currently running AHK on Linux. Well... sort of... I'm running AHK in Win2k Pro, which is running in a VMware Player window on aLinux. Although I'm sure a Linux version could be done, I'm guessing that it would likely be a bit painful to port directly based on the amount of Windows dependant API calls used. It would be great to have AHK code work in Linux though... :) .

Interestingly, it would appear that it would be better to start some type of AutoHotkey.NET project.

The reason why, is because there are a number of .NET projects to port the framework to the Linux and MAC OS. The .NET framework for Linux has come along way and is almost ready.

I've been using xbindkeys for my linux (Ubuntu Dapper) "hotkeys", and it's working great! Haven't been able to figure out how to create a "hot-string" in linux though. Do you know of any tools or resources that can perform host-string matching?

Thanks!

To wrap a Wxwindows GUI around the Tcl/Tk component for Record Plyaback of macro's in Linux the JW_Record_Playback application was created.

Check the digg-url: http://digg.com/linu... ... s_in_Linux

AHK is so marvelous! It needs a Linux version...

We should work to make a version to Linux... It would be great! It would be fantastic!

I can´t stand that there´s a super-interesting app for windows that do not have for linux...


What a dream... How stylish it would be using eclipse (or any editor) with two keyboars and vim functionalities!!! LOL

yeah!
also it would be great if the shortcuts could be well organized with those of KDE...

anyway, in linux I really miss the hotstrings feature... ('btw' = 'by the way') that's what most interest me on linux, because KDE has already a shortcut manager...
