KeepPass error message: xdotool

Host operating system: openSUSE Leap 15.1

Application: KeePass ver.2.38

Error message: The ‘xdotool’ utility/package is required for auto-type.

What is xdotool? xdotool is a tool that lets you programatically (or manually) simulate keyboard input and mouse activity, move and resize windows, etc. It does this using X11’s XTEST extension and other Xlib functions.

Note: This message appears when you are trying to use the Auto-type function of KeePass.

Solution: Install xdotool (Fake keyboard/mouse input).
