tool to record strings from GUI dialogs


Is there a tool that can record different strings from GUI dialogs?

I’d like to use such a tool because I wanna record what kind of options I select from the print dialog and group all of them in a txt file.

The idea is that I wanna record all the settings that I made to a print job to keep track of all the jobs submitted.

Can’t you use the cups->admin screen and select print jobs or install use the print-manager ?

It is an repetitive task and I wanna automate somehow if possible.

If using the standard lpd you could create a script to manage jobs and make it a cron or at task to cycle? Just my best guess.
