I am trying to use xdotool to type a URL and instead of:

https://www.sample.com/sales/search?facet=T&facetT=45259587&facet.T=44143327&facet.T=25866782&facet.T=260287 

I get:

https;//www.sample.com/sales/search/facet=t7facet.t=452595877facet.t=441433277facet.t=258667827facet.t=260287127facet

You can see that & has changed to 7, : to ;, as well as other issues.

My xdotool version is 3.20150503.1. How can I prevent this from happening?

  • Could you please provide the full command that you are issuing with xdotool? – aliceinpalth Mar 7 '18 at 18:17
  • xdotool type --window windowid "link string" – serj Mar 7 '18 at 18:45
  • The command you posted works for me. I'm using xdotool version 3.20160805.1. – dsstorefile1 Mar 9 '18 at 1:00
  • Then what system configurations should I check, or where to look for an answer to my problem? – serj Mar 13 '18 at 12:55
