XFCE keyboard shortcuts

I'm trying to emulate windows mousekeys with xfce keyboard shortcuts and xdotool. So I've bound Numpad 5 to this: xdotool click 1; xdotool click 3. But it only either clicks, or rightclicks, depending on what I have first. If I write that into a command line it works flawlessly.

Re: XFCE keyboard shortcuts

Hello and welcome.

The built-in interpreter is a very basic one. The semi-colon is tripping it up. Embed the commands in a bash string like:

bash -c "xdotool click 1; xdotool click 3"

This executes bash and passes bash the string to execute.

oh I see, I did a simple fix by making it into a sh script and then executing that, but thanks that'll work flawlessly aswell
