Keyfrog Tar.Gz is the main package. It includes Keyfrog & Keyvis source. Keyvis ZIP is a binary package of Keyvis -- the visualizing tool. Keyfrog DEB is a binary package of Keyfrog -- the monitoring daemon. Example Keyfrog run: $ keyfrog --nb --display $DISPLAY # # Building # Generic installation instructions are described in INSTALL. Basically run: $ ./autogen.sh ; ./configure ; make && make install Running autogen.sh might be optional -- if `configure' already exists, skip autogen. On the other hand, rerunning autogen.sh might help in case of unexpected configure problems. To include Keyvis, add --with-keyvis option to configure. It will use Ant to build NetBeans project. You will need jars (look below) and Java developer tools (JDK). You can also download a binary Keyvis package (it's in Java, so binary shouldn't cause any problems). # # Using Keyfrog # # 1. Daemon - KEYFROG # Try running in foreground (keyfrog --nb, also look at --help) -- observing keyfrog debug output makes it easy to tune configuration ~/.keyfrog/config. When run in background, output is being redirected to /tmp/keyfrog.log. Look at doc/sample-config. You probably want to copy it to ~/.keyfrog/config It's easy to edit. Keyfrog collects keyboard usage statistics into ~/.keyfrog/keyfrog.db database (SQLite). From there, separate GUI application `Keyvis' does computations and presents visualization. # # 2. Visualization - KEYVIS # To visualize collected data use Keyvis. Its sources are in keyvis sub-directory. Make sure all jar files are downloaded before building the NetBeans project (look into keyvis/README). Keyvis is installed in /opt/keyvis by default. Make a symlink: $ ln -s /opt/keyvis/keyvis /usr/bin Then start Keyvis by typing `keyvis' in shell. You can also download a binary release (zip file) from SourceForge. It includes the jars and is ready to run. Charts will be interesting after running keyfrog daemon for one week or more. For more information about Keyfrog go to SourceForge project page: http://sf.net/projects/keyfrog # # 3. RECORD extension # Keyfrog relies on RECORD extension of X11 server. On Ubuntu install packages libxtst6, libxtst-dev -- these are for Xorg server. Other package names: xorg-libXtst (macports). After installing, restart your desktop. On Mac OS X the RECORD extension needs to be enabled first (restart X11 after issuing one of the 'defaults' command): # if you use MacPorts Xserver (Xquartz) $ defaults write org.macports.X11 enable_test_extensions -boolean true # if you use Apple's original Xquartz Xserver $ defaults write org.x.X11 enable_test_extensions -boolean true Keyfrog is capable of monitoring applications being run INSIDE ANY X11 TERMINAL. So you can track whether you use `vim' or `mc', or other console program. This feature reads /proc file system -- so you can "only" monitor applications that run on the same machine on which keyfrog daemon runs. The X11 server can be remote. This feature still uses RECORD extension.
