Looks like you tried to save the page from the GitHub page as there is
no `<!DOCTYPE html>' text in that script, particularly at line 8.

Try this link:

Then save it from your browser but beware that your browser may add a
'.txt' extension (Chromium does that here) which should not be added
when you do a "Save As...".  You will also need to set the executable
bit on the file after you save it, i.e. 'chmod +x winkeydaemon' in the
directory you saved it.
