For info, a slightly modified version of Skippy-XD is hosted at Google Code: . Among other things it fixes compilation for i386/amd64 architectures.

Moreover, Ubuntu users can install the forked Skippy-XD from this PPA: .

Thank you for developing skippy-xd, it is a great utility. Please, keep this project alive. I'd like to see the possibility to configure the navigation keys, for instance, be able to use Vi-like keys (hjkl) instead of arrow keys.

Hi, I just wanted to let know i had to install this to compile skippy-xd on Debian Wheezy: libxrender-dev libxft-dev libxcomposite-dev libxdamage-dev libxfixes-dev libxmu-dev libxinerama-dev

Also, had this error when pressing the hotkey:
X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 3 (X_GetWindowAttributes)
Resource id in failed request: 0x0
Serial number of failed request: 105
Current serial number in output stream: 106

Fixed by doing a
sed -i 's/CARD32/CARD64/g' *
in the source directory.
