This is what I had to do to compile
xbindkeys-1.8.5 on Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwahl).
xbindkeys-1.8.3 available in the current ubuntu repositories crashes after pressing 7 listened for keys.
Because I have no idea what I'm doing, this advice should be taken with a grain of salt. I make no claims that following my directions won't erase all your data and destroy your computer.
- Put the latest xbindkeys tarball in some directory (I like to use
tar xvzf xbindkeys-1.8.5.tar.gz
sudo apt-get install libx11-dev guile-1.8 guile-1.8-dev guile-library
- Get some error. But just
sudo makea few more times anyway.
sudo make install
