I'm playing on a betting site where I have to enter a game number then select a specific result.

Each result can be entered by typing a code of keys.

For example, the result 1X/X can be selected by just typing 1KO8 and not scrolling the whole possible results to find the wanted one.

Is it possible to create a keyboard layout and manipulate the keys input to type a result directly.

    I don't really understand this question... Do you want a shortcut that enters a set of keys? Or do you want certain keys closer together?

  • Simple. Add a shortcut with the command xdotool key 1; xdotool key K; xdotool key O; xdotool key 8.

I would make use of the cross platform .NET rewrite of the popular Windows AutoHotkey scripting language, called IronAHK. I save time every day on my Windows system with AHK, cutting keystrokes and saving mouse clicks here and there.

You can check it out here:


And you should check out the original AHK as IronAHK doesn't market themselves to the extent of the original.
