I'm looking for a good keyboard macro program for Ubuntu Linux? I want to easily be able to "start recording" have it record all keys pressed. Then when I stop recording save it. then I want to be able to call the macro by hitting a special key and selecting the sequence. having to open a text file and program the macro will create too much overhead.
The program that comes closest to this that I know of is XMacro:
The XMacro package contains two simple, C++ programs (xmacrorec and xmacroplay) for recording and replaying keyboard and mouse events on an X server.
This is available in the Ubuntu repository as the xmacro package.
autokeys is a good option though it is more heavy weight than i am looking for
