How to Install AntiMicro on Ubuntu 18.10 And Ubuntu 18.04

As you may know, AntiMicro is an open source graphical application that allows the users to easily map keyboard and mouse buttons to gamepad buttons. Also, sequences of actions can be mapped on one button, in order to make the user’s gaming more pleasant and easy. The application is very good for games that do not have support for gamepad or joysticks.

The latest version available is AntiMicro 2.23, which brings the following changes:

  •  Fixed portable version. (issue #37)
  • Added ability to specify logging level and file in config dialog. (issue #50)
  • Updated build system to find libraries on Windows systems instead of using explicit paths. (issue #43)
  • Added relevant window information to debug messages related to auto profiles. (issue #46)
  • Fixed issue with anything in profile name after first period being truncated. (issue #70)
  • Fixed issues with SDL 2.0.5 on all platforms. (issue #71)
  • Added support for additional small-case Latin characters when using Xtest. (issue #49)
  • Added inclusion of README-SDL.txt when building Windows distributables.

Installation instructions:

Due to the fact that the latest versions of AntiMicro are not available via any PPA or repository, we will use the package created for Ubuntu 17.x. So, in order to successfully install it, you need to download the deb package for your architecture and install it via the default package manager. I prefer to use gdebi over dpkg due to the fact that it also handles dependencies.
