Hi, In installed the screenkey-git as of 2015-06-04 with a fully updated system, and the package builds and installs without errors but went I run screenkey I get the following in the console:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/screenkey", line 4, in <module>

TypeError: install() got an unexpected keyword argument 'unicode'

Any ideas? Should screenkey be using python3 or python2? Not sure why the file is stored here in python3 lib:


Can anyone help with the above error message?

Note: I now use a new active fork that fixed several bugs and added new features (

Thanks for adding this. I believe this is missing python2-distutils-extra as a build dependency.
