xautomation 1.09

Tools to automate tasks in X such as detecting on screen images

Xautomation can control X from the command line for scripts, and do visual scraping to find things on the screen. The control interface allows mouse movement, clicking, button up/down, key up/down, etc, and uses the XTest extension so you don't have the annoying problems that xse has when apps ignore sent events. The visgrep program can find images inside of images and reports the coordinates, allowing programs to find buttons, etc, on the screen to click on.


Install xautomation 1.09 as follows:

guix install xautomation@1.09

Or install the latest version:

guix install xautomation

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
