Autoclicker for linux?

Post by avnisharma65123 »

I'm looking for a specific auto clicker tool that I can use to click on a selected window. However, it should not interfere with normal mouse usage, such that I need a program that can click on one window. This should happen in the background while I surf the web on another window.

Does such an autoclicker exist for linux?

I highly doubt that. I don't think auto-clickers exist for any other OS other than windows.

First show whether there is anything like that.
These programs which I have seen are usually written for a specific program.
It's called a " window handle " in C/C++ or something, I don't know because I'm not a programmer.

xdotool it is used more for mouse mapping, (or keyboard mapping)
that is, the mouse buttons can be assigned other functions / possibilities in the system.
xdotool can be used to simulate a keyboard or a mouse, so it is used in scripts.
So it is a tool, not a ready program.
And I don't seen " window handle " or just I don't know how create window handle in script,
so probably this is not for you.

Yes, there are auto clickers available for other OS as well. There are some autoclicker even for Mac.

Thanks. I will try xdotool and see if it does the job.

If you are a beginner, I wrote that there is a high probability that you will not be able to do it.
Because you have to learn how to use the terminal and write scripts like Bash
But you won't be able to do it without reading the guides.
It's like reading holy books that do magic. :D
If you will know how use terminal and "man" and "--help" options in terminal, then it will be easy for you.
For beginners, it is better " autokey " probably.
It is in repository Linux Mint.
