Its a desktop environment. Does your desktop look like this by any chance:

KAutoclick is designed for KDE, to make it run you will need to install a LOT of Qt and KDE libs as it expects you to be running KDE. It can be done but it will be sleeker and require fewer extra packages if you can use something designed for Gnome as that is the desktop you are using. Do you basically want to make macros for clicking on the screen in certain points or is it only for web browser?

Don't be afraid of new terms. You aren't using KDE, using that app will bloat your OS a lot. I'll find you a Gnome equivelant.

Try xnee

Description-en: X event recorder/replayer - metapackage
 GNU Xnee is a suite of programs that can record, replay and
 distribute user actions under the X11 environment. Think of it as a
 robot that can imitate the job you just did.
 .
 Xnee can be used to
  - automate tests
  - demonstrate programs
  - distribute actions
  - record and replay 'macro'
  - retype a file
 .
 This package contains a metapackage depending on one of the
 implementation of Xnee (command line, graphical user interface or
 GNOME panel).
