You'd better ask this in unix.stackexchange.com or askubuntu.com –  Ali Mar 21 '12 at 9:56

@Ali, Additionally, (s)he's asked 14 questions in just over a month, hasn't answered any and has 0% accept rate, when many of the questions asked have 1 or more answers. Makes me wonder why I bothered spending the time to research a detailed answer. –  Mat Mar 21 '12 at 10:42

Look at expect or shell scripting or xautomation

This topic has been discussed many times on the AutoIt forums. One of the more recent ones that I can remember is this one, by far the most comprehensive about it is here.

Some features of AutoIt do work under wine. However, some of the more powerful automation function are very windows specific so I doubt they will work perfectly.

However, wine is not the answer. You are much better off finding alternatives that are native to linux. A few ideas that might be worth investigating:

  • Java, using classes such as java.awt.Robot
  • Python, google for python automation libraries for linux, like uinput or dogtail.
  • Any of the tools listed on this page.
