Is there a good macro recorder in linux?


I am trying to do a repetive operation in Nvu and wondered if there was a macro recorder, or at least a macro editor.

From my experience, Emacs does good macro. Check it out.

also with mouse?

I downloaded emacs, but it aparently only does keyboard macros within itself (though I am not sure about that since I am new to linux)
I wanted to know is there was anything that would move the mouse and click it, as well as send keyboard strokes.

Haven't tried that yet, most of the macro I used are all keyboard-based.

Hi,
What exactly is it that you would like to be able to accoplish with your macro? The reason I ask is that in Linux, the idea of 'macros' is not as common because many things are done using shell scripts or something similar, and you may be able to accomplish what you need with this.

I have a page with about 300 thumbnails, and I would like to link each to a full sized picture. I am using Nvu for this, I did this same kind of thing under windows with Dreamweaver and some shareware macro once, but I thought there might be something better under Linux.

The Konqueror file manager has feature which does this very nicely. While in the directory which has the large pictures, go to Tools / Create Image Gallery... . This will make a sub-directory called thumbs and an index called images.html .
The images.html has visual list of the thumbnails which automatically expand to a regular image when selected.

If you are still interested in macros, you could look into a linux tool called m4 . On my box there is no man entry for m4 but I am able to use m4 --help
