[ubuntu] xdotool question

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm on 12.04. I have xdotool and xclip installed. I have a script bound to a hot key that works. The script is: Code: #!/bin/bash xclip -in -selection c ~/scripts/xclip-scripts/sig The sig file contains my signature. (I know this is really simple. :D) So now, I can hit the hot key and then ctrl+v to paste my name in a document, web brownser etc. I thought it would be cool, if my name was automatically pasted where ever the cursor is when I press the hot key. That is the problem. I can't get that part to work. I tried adding Code: xdotool key ctrl+v and I swear (Hardware)
