How can I simulate a keystroke in python? I also want to press multiple keys simultaneously.
Although it's specific to X, you can install the xautomation package (
apt-get install xautomation on Debian-based systems) and use
xte to simulate keypresses, e.g.:
from subprocess import Popen, PIPE control_f4_sequence = '''keydown Control_L key F4 keyup Control_L ''' shift_a_sequence = '''keydown Shift_L key A keyup Shift_L ''' def keypress(sequence): p = Popen(['xte'], stdin=PIPE) p.communicate(input=sequence) keypress(shift_a_sequence) keypress(control_f4_sequence)
