For a small automation process I am using xdotool because I need my script to ssh into a virtual machine and execute commands there. After upgrading Ubuntu to 13.10, it seems like xdotool can't type
y correctly anymore. Even a simple
xdotool type --clearmodifiers "y"
← being typed. It seems to work just fine for characters other than
y. I tried un- and reinstalling xdotool, but no success. Any ideas or suggestions on how to fix this?
I have xdotool with version 3.20130505.1 and am using a Dell Latitude E6530 with Ubuntu 13.10.
