Re: [vox-tech] Macro Key and Mouse recorder for Linux

wget will not work because every page checks the IIS
session for UID/PWD.

I am using some Mercury tools to test the site. I was
looking for the same type of thing for linux.

If I could script the key presses and entries into the text
boxes then I could test galeon, opera, mozilla and netscape
on linux for compatability.

There are a number of tools to record keystrokes for
windows, but I have not found one for linux.
