Projects / xlax


xlax is an X11 input multiplexer: it sends your keyboard input from the xlax window to a group of windows simultaneously. The tool is designed for system administrators who typically have to do the same thing on several machines (or in several different directories). Windows can be added or deleted interactively, or temporarily disconnected and reconnected. xlax allows you to assign a custom string to each window (e.g. a hostname) that can be sent with a button click. An included script handles starting up and arranging windows, and allows you to set up commonly used window groupings in a config file.

    Release Notes: Pasting the current selection and using Send String were both broken for anything except alphanumeric characters. This is now fixed, and all 7-bit characters should be handled correctly.

      Release Notes: A "Paste" button has been added to allow you to paste the current selection to all active windows. The documentation has been updated to reflect changes. There's also some code cleanup; it might compile more cleanly now.
