Xdotool for PiCore 8
« on: September 22, 2016, 11:40:17 PM »
Hello!

I need Xdotool for my Kiosk setup. It is needed for webpage refreshing because database connections don't update otherwise.

Could someone more capable compile Xdotool for PiCore 8 and add to the repository?

Thank you!

I found an old Xdotool.tcz in "distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/3.x/tcz/" but I get an "unexpected symbol '(' in line 1.

Actually I need this for PiCore 7.1 beta4 because I noticed yesterday that 8 does not have X yet.

Could someone be kind enough to look into it?

You get that message because xdotool is compiled for i486 rather than pi...

Yeah, I kinda figured it was something like that. I tried to compile latest xdotool source by the book but I failed when it came to needing xkbcommon.h.

You need libxkbcommon from  http://xkbcommon.org/download/

More problems with every step. This one uses autoconf to compile. Autogen script stops when checking for Yacc support. I installed Bison but still can't get past this...
