    It isn't packaged for openSUSE but you can download it from Snippits KDE-Apps.org as a KDE app. You will also have to install various Ruby programs.

    I suspect, as the date given is 2007, that it hasn't really taken off and been developed.

    Never having used it, I am not sure whether having text completion enabled in OpenOffice and other Linux programs has meant people have found less use for it than have Windows users.

    John,

    Thanks for your reply. I will give it a try.

    I am surprised to see very less programs similar to one I mentioned. I use Shortkey on windows and comes very handy as I have keys for my address, email, telephone etc which you need quite often.

    If you are using KDE try Configure Desktop>Input actions.

    Under Examples, you will find something similar to what you are describing.
