Cool Implement the SendKeys method to Automate configuration tasks in Bodhi

I suggest to Implement the SendKeys method to Automate configuration tasks in Bodhi Linux.

The configuration tasks are normally te∑di∑ous, e.g. to configure the
Chinese Pinyin Input , need to do it by checking video step by step. even though , it is still too intricate .

So I suggest to implement the SendKeys method to Automate configuration tasks, To use the SendKeys method to automate those tasks that use the same keystroke and mouse combinations.

create a SendKeys macro to automate the complicated configuration tasks.

For the end user, the life is easy , just run a script or click a button somewhere in the setting panel.

"When Microsoft introduced Windows Script Host 2.0 in 1999, they included a new method in the object model called SendKeys. As the name implies, the SendKeys method is designed to allow you to send any keystrokes you can imagine from within a script to an active window just as if they were typed from the keyboard."

"The SendKeys method provides you with a very easy-to use, macro-like tool, and best of all, itís built right into the Windows operating system. "

I found this website sounds talk about this :

Library: keybd_event
Works with: Ubuntu 16.04".

I do not know programming that I have no idea if it is difficult job to make it. So just for reference.
I am sure that developers have more important tasks need to achieve. This is just a enhancement or nice to have function.
