NAME

       xte - Generates fake input using the XTest extension

SYNOPSIS

       xte [options] commands...

DESCRIPTION

       xte  is  a program that generates fake input using the XTest extension,
       more reliable than xse.

OPTIONS

       A summary of options is included below.

       -x display
              Send commands to remote X server. Note that  some  commands  may
              not  work  correctly  unless the display is on the console, e.g.
              the display is currently controlled by the  keyboard  and  mouse
              and  not in the background. This seems to be a limitation of the
              XTest extension.

       --help, -h
              Show summary of options.
