Are there any good typing tutor applications available for Ubuntu?
Or install from the command line with
sudo apt-get install klavaro
Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus) or later
sudo apt install klavaro
Klavaro is a simple tutor to teach correct typing, almost independently of language and very flexible regarding to new or unknown keyboard layouts. Its key features are: * Internationalization * Ready to use keyboard layouts * Keyboard layout editor * Basic course * Adaptability, velocity and fluidness exercises * Progress charts.
OMG! Words! is free, cheesy and somewhat addictive. Better still it’s easy to play.If you have an internet connection OMG! Words! will pull glean a list of words from recent posts for you to ‘battle’ against (If you don’t have an internet connection then it just uses magic).
Add the PPAs
ppa:bartbes/love-stable to your Software Sources (Here's how to do that) and install omgwords from the Software Center.
ktouch is a great application for this purpose.
There are also a quick game named tux typing :-)
For my purpose I use this program with wine. Maybe work with natty. Is available also in english language. Is not GPL.
Type-Fu (http://type-fu.com/) is available as an OSX app and as a chrome addon.
The killer feature from my perspective was that is supports multiple keyboard layouts, including Dvorak and Coleman, whereas more typing tutors are designed around QWERTY layouts.
