<Dazed_75> Using Autokey scripts to automate your Linux desktop
<Dazed_75>     http://www.maketecheasier.com/using-autokey-scripts-to-automate-linux-desktop/2013/05/11
<Dazed_75> NOTE: the included script did not work on my system for several reasons (all fixable).  First, awk and sed are located in /bin/, not /usr/bin/ which may just be a distro or release difference.  Second, line 21 uses 'lt' rather than '<' as a comparison operator and my awk did not recognize that.  Third, after fixing th 'lt' to '<' I also need to remove the ';' following the operator.
