I would like to set some of my laptop keys to simulate mousekey clicks as follows:
F1 = click left mb once
F2 = click left mb double
F3 = click right mb once
(I did the same setup in Windows by using the autohotkey software.)
To realise this, here is what I did:
Run commandand add 3 shortcut keys: F1, F2, F3. The commands to execute on these respective keys are as follows:Code:xfce4-keyboard-settings
F1 = xte 'mouseclick 1'
F2 = xte 'mouseclick 1' 'mouseclick 1'
F3 = xte 'mouseclick 3'
However, this seems to work only partially. The reaction of mouseclicks is not always as expected (not similar as when i click on the real mouse buttons). For example, within firefox it works like a charm, but when i click on the XFCE menubar in top of my window, for example the little mouse logo top left to open the programs menu, it does not react.
When i have a terminal open and i want to left click on the file menu, it does not open the file menu.
I would like to know if anyone else has:
- some clues about what the cause of this could be?
- done a similar setup in another way, which works 100% as expected?
Would be really nice to fix this
