You mean like xnee (http://www.gnu.org/software/xnee/):

 Xnee is a suite of programs that can record, replay and distribute
user actions under the X11 environment. Think of it as a robot that
can imitate the job you just did. Xnee can be used to:

    Automate tests      e.g nightly automatic regression tests
    Demonstrate programs        e.g record and replay a user interaction
with your system
    Distribute actions  e.g teacher's actions can be sent to all
student's desktops
    Record and replay 'macro'   e.g Tie a key modifier combination (e.g
using xkeymouse) to replay a recorded session. The macro is WM- and
program independent.
    Retype a file       e.g When testing an editor, Xnee can type in the
content of a file. This can be compared with the original and thereby
