    XMacro Loop

    I am running Ubunutu 8.04 LTS and recently installed XMacro. I can record and play macro's just fine. Does anyone know if there is a command to play a macro for a specific number of times.

    For example. I have a macro that types followed by some mouse clicks. Now how would I run that macro 100 times?

    Would I need to write a script to do it?

    Re: XMacro Loop

    Hi, I've been trying to get Xmacro to work but can't figure out how and the documentation I can find is very limited. What you are asking be done pretty simply by writing a bash script to automatically repeat the Xmacro task a number of times. I can help you write this if you can post how you get Xmacro to record and then play back on here.. Thanks

    if you still have 8.10 then open recorded macro with test editor and copy paste 100x the same code.
