Good evening Linux community...

I am a new user of the Linux system (Manjaro Distribution) and I am really enjoying it, it has served me very well.

However, I used an application on Windows that I could "program" certain events when pressing a keyboard key.

Example 1:
By pressing the "F1" key it sends letters "A" and "B".

Example 2:
By pressing and holding the "F2" key it sends every 3 seconds (until I release the "F2" key), the "C" and "D" keys.

I searched the internet on how to make this determination function on my system in the simplest way possible, I found tools like AutoKey and xdotool.

My question is, do both programs allow me to do the certain function I would like?

And what is the "cleanest", "fastest" and "efficient" way to do this particular function?

Thanks and sorry for English, it's not my native language.
