Typoo is a small application written with Gambas that can be used for boosting and or testing your typing speed. It is a language-independent application because it uses external text files loaded into Typoo and you have to type the loaded file.

Install Typoo on Ubuntu is a piece of cake, just type the following commands in Terminal:
  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:typoo-team/ppa
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install typoo
Have an ugly interface? Here's the solution!
Typoo is made using Gambas so it needs some qt libraries to get a nice interface:
  • sudo apt-get install qt3-qtconfig polymer
Once, "qt3-qtconfig" installed, run the following command and set your desired qt GUI style:
  • qtconfig-qt3

Don't forget to save the changes by clicking "File - Save" on menubar. Now, your Typoo should looks like the first picture above.
