I want to quick paste some different strings using hotkeys. For example if I press Alt+L in any input form it works like if I pasted loremipsum. Or it may be some abbreviation, for example I enter li, press Tab and get loremipsum.

I'm using Linux Mint with KDE desktop.

In Windows I could do it using AutoHotkey


Install xbindkeys and xvkbd

echo '"xvkbd -text loremipsum"
alt + l' >> ~/.xbindkeysrc
  • Should I simple write this two lines in console after installing? – Pavel Jan 4 '17 at 14:32
  • Okay, it added two lines to file .xbindkeysrc in my home folder but prints oremipsum – Pavel Jan 4 '17 at 14:58
