How much cps?

The highest I have got with it was around 750cps, but that was still with 1 millisecond interval.

With 0 millisecond interval, the focused application may freeze.


After cloning the repository, you only have to run this one command. The executable will be placed in ./build/release/src/xclicker.

$ make release


If you don’t want to install XClicker on your system, and just have it as a portable executable, this is how you would do it.

  • Go to the downloads and download the .AppImage file.
  • Once downloaded, cd into the download folder and run:
chmod +x ./*.AppImage

You should now be able to execute the .AppImage like any other application.


First you will have to check what Linux distribution you are using. If you are using either Debian or Arch Linux, installation will be easier.

Debian / Ubuntu:

  • Go to downloads and download the .deb file.
  • Run sudo apt-get install ./xclicker_version_amd64.deb where version is the version of the downloaded release.

Or even easier, with an install script:

bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/robiot/xclicker/main/pkg/deb-install.sh)


On Arch its super simple to install via the Aur(Arch User Repository). Just make sure you have an Aur helper installed.

yay -S xclicker

If you don’t have an Aur helper, you can download the PKGBUILD manually.

git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/xclicker.git
cd xclicker
makepkg -si

Other distros:

Its recommended to use the AppImage, but if you really want to install it you can do it with this.

git clone https://github.com/robiot/xclicker.git
cd xclicker
make install
