xmacrorec can be used to record mouse and keyboard events on any X11 display.
xmacroplay can be used to playback recorded events or send any other
mouse/keyboard events you choose. It is very handy for scripting an
X display - for example controlling a presentation in mgp or ultrapoint
from a script, network connection...
xmacroplay-keys is a script to help use the above.
Together these utils can be used to record and replay sessions
for demonstrations etc.
