How to Uninstall and Install xhk on Ubuntu 22.04

Updated: October 10, 2022

Running xhk detaches the keyboard, and intercepts all input; processing it for space bar pushes as it goes. The space bar acts as a modifier if it is held at the same time as a standard letter. Modifying acts to mirror the input such that key presses are mirrored down the middle of the home row. Pressing space, and then releasing will still provide a single space character. In this guide, I will show you how to install xhk on Ubuntu 22.04.
