Compiling KeePassX from source with Auto-Type enabled

tl;dr Install the libXtest package, which on Debian is libxtst-dev. Wasn’t it obvious that test is spelled with no e? Not to me atleast. This is done on a Debian Jessie (aka Testing) machine. Following will assume you have managed to get KeePassX compile happy. But then when you go in to settings you can’t find where to define the global Auto-Typ key.

An Image lightbox

Every now and then when creating for the web you are likely to need a fancy slideshow way of displaying images, a lightbox who apparently had sort of the same experience as me. He equally like me wanted something simple and slick that would give a great experience on any device, touch devices included. To my satisfaction he also provided it!
