    Unhappy Guide to software install

    I am trying to install a program for auto typing, but I am so inadequeted. I just need someone to try to explain what to do step by step.

    This is the link of the install (autotyper):
    http://www.garyshood.com/rsclient_linux/

    Also in the site, but I will link the 'instructions' to download a requirement(xvkbd) here:
    http://homepage3.nifty.com/tsato/xvkbd/#download

    It says I also need GTS+ 2.x so an explaination for that would be greatly appreciated.

    THANK you so much ahead of time.

    the package in question is available from the repo. Press "ctrl"+ "alt"+"t" and type:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xvkbd
    to run check in the program list for "xvkbd" or from the terminal, type
    Code:
    xvkbd

    Re: Guide to software install

    yeah sorry, about the posting.

    Now I installed and ran it but I only get the virtual keyboard, which is nice (because I dont think ubuntu has one). Bu the actual program i was trying to install was the autotyper. and the xvkdb was the requirement, so maybe thats just 1 step.

    Again thanks sofar, just need help doing the next (final?) step of installing the actual autotyper at the top of the first link:
    http://www.garyshood.com/rsclient_linux/

    AKA which one do I install? and how would I do it.

    METHOD -1
    we need to know about your system first:
    give as the result of these command:
    Code:
    uname -a



    METHOD-2 (Not suggested)

    If you know waht you are doing you can build it from source.
    Long way : build from source
    always in the terminal , follow these comands: (just copy and paste exactly like here; do not try to type it, you may mistype it)
    Code:
    wget -O autotyper.c "http://www.garyshood.com/rsclient_linux/download.php?d=source"
    gcc -Wall -g autotyper.c -o autotyper `pkg-config --cflags gtk+-2.0` `pkg-config --libs gtk+-2.0`

    Code:
    tar xvzf ~/Downloads/autotyper-x86.tar.gz
    (###output) autotyper
    ./autotyper

    Re: Guide to software install

    you can run the program by typing "~/autotyper". Or just doubloe click it in your home directory.

    beast@Beast:~$ tar xvzf ~/Downloads/autotyper-x86.tar.gz
    tar (child): /home/beast/Downloads/autotyper-x86.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
    tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
    tar: Child returned status 2
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
