I want something that records (like Macro) the GUI actions and keystrokes that can be played later to accomplish same actions. Something like Automator in OS X.

I have already looked into Alternative for Mac OS X Automator? I have tried Gnee, but that doesn't seem to work,tried several times but I guess its kinda buggy, I also tried Sikuli but that needs coding.

  • I have already discussed about the Gnee not working in one of my earlier question, and the programme doesn't work ie. when I press record, it disappears and I cant find it anywhere, I can then only open it once again with a fresh window. Dec 2 '10 at 6:47

Have you tried AutoKey? It can do quite a lot of keyboard interference through abbreviations and hotkeys. It's less focussed on GUI interactions but if the application in question has keyboard shortcuts, it can use them.

sudo apt-get install autokey-gtk
  • The action may not be commands, so I guess this wont work as you are saying less GUI focus and keyboard shortcuts, But I'll look into it. Dec 1 '10 at 10:54
