Simple Deluge WebUI login

If you use Deluge WebUI then from time to time you have to enter your password and select default connection in the connection manager. It could be a bit annoying, especially if you use your own local server (e.g. OpenMediaVault) and do not expose WebUI to the external world. Of course, you can use a workaround and avoid direct interaction with WebUI. For example, Transdrone is a good Android interface, which can connect to Deluge using your WebUI password. Looks good, but it's much better just to remove these annoying windows. Below is a step-by-step instruction.

Replacement of xdotool: xmacro

For those who don't know: xdotool - it's a small console program, which can emulate keyboard and mouse input. I used it together with irexec and lirc to control my computer. xdotool I used only to control sound volume by emulating multimedia keystrokes. Unfortunately, I found an unpleasant bug. Starting from some unknown version (I don't know the exact number, because I notice this behavior much later) xdotool refused to work correctly with non-english keyboard layouts. Moreover, after I switched to Debian, it started to hang for second before execute command.

I did not have time to deeply investigate this problem, but accidentally I found a great alternative. Its name is xmacro.
