xdotool no longer types anything. It worked well a few days ago.

for example this command has no outputs (and no errors):

xdotool type 'Hello world!'

What is the problem?

I uninstalled and reinstalled it. But nothing was solved.

xdotool --version
xdotool version 3.20130506.1

    What version of xdotool do you have? What terminal emulator are you using? What desktop environment? – terdon May 20 '14 at 12:07
  • the last available for 13.10 in repo. Any terminal, KDE. – user126106 May 20 '14 at 12:18
  • Please run xdotool --version and edit your question to include the output. – terdon May 20 '14 at 12:22
