I'm trying to run Screenkey in order to screencast a tutorial in which the attendants are to see my key strokes. However, it turns out that although Screencast didn't require any additional dependencies on Kubuntu, whenever I attempt to use the "Preferences" (dialog?) nothing gets shown and the application freezes. The icon for Screenkey in the notification bar also doesn't react anymore from that point on.

Would this be a bug or expected behavior on Kubuntu?

I have tried it as well. Ouite nice program, I thank you for showing it to me. It behaves just like you describe. Looks like a bug to me. I runned screenkey with strace -f and it got a timeout on a futex call and a subprocess exited. –  McNisse Jan 29 '13 at 11:24
