Question installing key touch on xubuntu


I am trying to install key touch on Xubuntu .
"sudo apt-get install keytouch" doesn't work as I get 'Unable to locate package keytouch' message. I downloaded the software from its source extracted it to my desktop.Opened a terminal in that directory and ran sudo make install , which resulted in below error messages and no installation. Any help is appreciated.Regards.

It looks to me like you had an unresolved dependency there, which is Linux talk for 'something's missing that I need to install|work properly'.

I went to that webpage you you linked in your post, and there was a link to a .deb file for keytouch. Every time I've installed a software from .deb, it clearly stated what other conponents I needed, or it just satisfied the dependencies as it installed.

I bet if you tried to install using the file keytouch for 32-bit (keytouch for 64-bit), you'd have better results.

Also, it looks to me like you'll want to install keytouch-editor as well, to make and save a keytouch config file for use with keytouch. Can't say for sure though, never used it myself.

Hope this helps!
