Mouse automation?


Hey, I was curious... Are there any programs out there (with a GUI) that can record mouse movements/clicks for a set number of seconds (or any other way to tell it to stop) and then repeat those mouse actions as many times as I want (infinite).

By the way.. I'm running mandrake 9.1 and would prefer a simple installation...

If you know of any, please tell me.

I just tried it.... I couldn't get it to work. I wish things would have better documentation, I dont know how they expect me to know what to do.

Can you give a more complete description of "tried it"
That doesn't even give me a clue what went wrong.

I'm with you on documentation. Most of it is bad.

I downloaded it, extracted it, and then tried to do "run" it told me some commands. So I tried "run rec test" and just got errors :

./run: line 26: xv: command not found
./xmacrorec: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.1-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


I have already grabbed nearly everything I could find that contained "libstdc++". Not sure where to go from here...

New development, after grabbing all that libstdc++ junk, it broke gaim. Every attempt to launch gaim now spits out :

gaim: /lib/libgcc_s.so.1: version `GCC_3.3' not found (required by /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5)

To fix what you did w/ libstdc++ you'll need someone
with a more intimate knowledge of Mandrake, I suspect
you can fix it with your installation CD but I don't use
Mandrake.

I D/Led the package to check it out.
As for "run" it was just an example script.
The README file wasn't the most informative
file, but it did say that. (BTW xv is an image viewer)

To install the program you need to open a terminal
go into the directory containing the extracted archive
and enter

make

This will create the executables in the package
There isn't an install section in the Makefile, but
you can do a

make rpm

and it will create an RPM file to install
