I need to enter login details automatically into GUI program (Ubuntu 18.04) and click login. All that can be done by clicking tab few times, login details and enter. I would use xdotool, but I use VNC (vnc4server, xfce4) and it appears that xdotool doesn't work with VNC.

The question is how to automate button clicks on X11 VNC environment.

The error I get from xdotool:

Segmentation fault

    What implementation (and version) of VNC server are you using? – steeldriver Dec 23 '18 at 14:14
