There's a typo in the command you ran. You ran:

sudo apt-get install xbindykeys xbindkeys-config

You should instead run:

sudo apt-get install xbindkeys xbindkeys-config

Thanks but I thinki I might have another issue...

You're getting this error because you didn't launch xbindkeys before trying to configure it with xbindkeys-config. Please note that there seem to be other steps you're skipping too. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/KeyboardShortcuts#Text%20Entry%20Shortcuts.

Can you help with this problem?
