    So on Windows I use Breevy (though I’m trying to move to Autohotkey) and on macOS, I use Keyboard Maestro.

    Is there an alterantive to this on Linux? I can’t really see one. Main reasoning is to automatically make life easier naming files. I currently use the phrase Qd to insert the current YYYY-MM-DD where the cursor is.

    I’ve used a shell script in the past that has seemed to work – I’ve uploaded it to here. However, in Mint, it’s not working – as soon as I invoke it in the file manager, it loses focus on me renaming a file and then obviously wont paste the date in. It seemed to work elsewhere but not in the file manager.

    Does anyone have any ideas? I wasn’t successful getting Autohotkey to work under Wine either.

    Cant edit the original now, but I believe I have played with Autokey in the past without much success.
