I forgot to say, that I use Fedora 25, 32 bit.
was not made executable by the install process, so I had to do it by hand:
sudo chmod +x /usr/sbin/kbdsniffd
Also, I had to make a symbolic link in /dev/input/uinput to /dev/uinput:
sudo ln -s /dev/uinput /dev/input/uinput
Which reminds me, that you have to load the uinput kernel module, if you don't have it loaded already:
sudo modprobe uinput
Both kbdsniffd and sbl should be run as root or with sudo.
kbdsniffd should be already running before you start sbl.
