View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing Autoclicker

March 19th, 2011, 10:29 PM
I found a tool made for Ubuntu called Xautoclick. I downloaded it and it is called "xautoclick-0.30.tar.gz" The installation notes say "tallatBe sure you have the proper development packages for your distribution
installed (i.e. something like xserver-xorg-dev, gtk2-dev, et cetera).

After that, run:

sudo make install"
I have no clue what to do... I typed in "./configure" in the terminal and it says "bash: ./configure: No such file or directory?

Could someone perhaps teamviewer me and help me? Thanks.

If you have un-tared to the Desktop folder & the folder the files are in is called xautoclick, do the following in the terminal:

cd Desktop/xautoclick
Then run:

Hey, I tried doing the ./configure, but it said

None of the xautoclick applications can be build.
You need to install the development packages of X11,
GTK+ and/or QT. Check the documentation of your distribution
for detail.

I'm not sure what to do.. any help would be appreciated!
