Hello everyone.. I had searched the forums for a good auto typer for something, like a video game, or anything else for that matter...

I don't want to have to type in a long list of codes.. Is there a download able light-weight, or small apt-get install (name) program for auto typing?

Hey there.

Although i never needed a auto typer (aka macro) software for linux, i found out that xmacro is good choice.
To install it open your synaptic package manager and search for xmacro.

here is a link for usage

Autokey is another famous "auto typer."
http://autokey.sourceforge.net/

They have an Ubuntu PPA, which is a software channel. That means that you can install software without typing in "long lists of code," although you do have to do a few minor things in order to add the channel. There are instructions on the PPA page:

How do I download AutoKey?

Do I need a special program to extract it to the correct place, and it says I need to open it with "Archive Manager"

Use the second link that makariolewis (http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=907500) has provided.
It contains instructions ;)

I do not see Instructions.
They are at the top of that page, in the box entitled "Description".

Here are the instructions from the site:

This PPA contains the latest debs of AutoKey for Ubuntu. To install AutoKey, you must first enable the PPA on your system:
1. Open Software Sources (System->Administration->Software Sources)
2. Navigate to the "Third Party Sources" tab.
3. Click "Add"
4. Enter the APT line below that corresponds to your Ubuntu version that starts with "deb".
5. Click "Add Source"
6. Click "Close"
7. It will prompt you to reload your software cache. Click "Reload".
8. Now install the package "autokey" from Synaptic, or using the command below:
sudo apt-get install autokey

Scroll a bit down on that page.
You'll see something like this

Install packages: Copy the lines below and add them to your system's software sources. (Read about installing (https://launchpad.net/+help/soyuz/ppa-sources-list.html))
Display sources.list entries for: Karmic (9.10) Jaunty (9.04) Intrepid (8.10) Hardy (8.04)
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/cdekter/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/cdekter/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

Just add both of them i guess

1. Go to System > Administration > Software Sources, and click on the Third Party tab.
2. Go to this link: https://launchpad.net/~cdekter/+archive/ppa. On that page, scroll down to where it says "Install Packages." Make sure Jaunty (9.04) is in the dropdown box. Copy the first line that is there. It starts with deb and ends with main.
3. Back in Software Sources, click "Add.." and paste that line (beginning with deb and ending with main) and click "Add Source." Then go back to the website, copy the line beneath the line you just pasted (beginning with deb-src this time) and do the same thing.
4. Close Software Sources, and hit reload when prompted.

I did it three times, the two individually, and the two together.. But, I got an error...

What should I do?

Just using the first one alone :

W: GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net jaunty Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY BCD80C6A6E3C0CE5

Just using the second one alone :

W: GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net jaunty Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY BCD80C6A6E3C0CE5

Using them both together, highlighted, then pasted, no revision :

(Too long, will not go.. But there is definitely an error)

try to enter this into terminal and repeat the steps mentioned above

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 1024R/6E3C0CE5 (http://keyserver.ubuntu.com:11371/pks/lookup?search=0x4022579E8E3015F1466460BDBCD80C6A6E 3C0CE5&op=index)

and after that

sudo apt-get update

everything is on that site. Just learn to read all of the stuff

Lukica18 (http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=904837) is right. Everything is on the website. His key instructions should work for you.

If you're curious about what that error is, it basically means that the third party channel that you added is unverified, and Ubuntu is not sure if it's a trustworthy site. If you look on the PPA site, it has a signing key. By adding this key, Ubuntu knows that the PPA you added is legit.
