    How did you try? Did you take it from the repository?
    Software.openSUSE.org
    Just search for xautomation there and you have the option to do 1-Click install too.

    Thanks added this to the bookmarks.

    Compiling the current version I got this but the download worked fine. ( and installed some fonts which might have
    been missing )

    Could not understand the real error message (not in English). It looks like the header files are mixed up somehow.

    Sorry about bringing up the old topic, but I really need the xautomation package. xte, to be more precise. It is not present in any of the repositories (I am using openSUSE 12.1). What's the reason for that? I am new to opensuse, is it always this hard to find popular software on suse?
    Anyway, since there is no easy way, I tried to compille it myself, but I also get an error about XTest.h missing. And I do not know what to do further. Please help.

    You have to ask the developers not other users!

    Never heard about it, what is your definition of the word popular - I
    would say it depends on very personal preferences.

    I quickly compiled now version 1.0.5
    Code:
    ../configure
    make
    it compiles just fine on 11.4 (did not try on 12.1) I guess you miss a
    requirement. The output from configure should tell you which otherwise
    it is a bug in xautomation.
    Anyway XTest.h is in xorg-x11-devel, install it and try again.

    Installed that package, then another error popped up. Just took an xautomation rpm from Fedora 15 ant it worked like a charm.

    You solved it by using a different package, but let me show what is
    needed for others who want to compile it on 12.1.

    Just checked it myself on 12.1 to see what really goes wrong there. It
    is almost definitely a bug in the xautomation configure script it does
    not properly recognize how to link correctly with the X libraries on
    different systems (which means on some systems or xorg versions it will
    just compile on others it will just fail without a patch).

    For everyone else who wants to compile that

    Code:
    ../configure LIBS='-lX11'
    solves that and make will succeed.

    ??? I do not see anything about its popularity ???

    Take the following as a friendly suggestion for the future:

    Next time you miss a package post a feature request at openFATE
    https://features.opensuse.org/

    If nobody does that (including you, I cannot see your request) it simply
    means nobody wants it.
