AHK alternative for Ubuntu?

05 Jun 2014, 10:46

I've asked askubuntu and stackoverflow, with no luck.

The best solution I've found is `xbindkeys + xdotool or xvkbd`
But it doesn't work nearly as well as AHK, I have a post about that here http://askubuntu.com/questions/463201/x ... rking-well

I don't need many of the features of AHK, the most complicated thing I'm trying to do is this:

Code: Select all

!j:: Send, {Left}
+!j:: Send, +{Left}
^!j:: Send, ^{Left}
^+!j:: Send, ^+{Left}
(Maps alt+j to the left arrow key (also works with different modifiers))

I heard about IronAHK, which was supposed to be a cross-platform port of AHK, but apparently that died a long time ago. I think a cross-platform or *nix based AHK would be awesome, I would give $$$ if there was a kickstarter for it!

Cheers ;)
