COMPILATION:
It's doable, but i wouldn't say it's easy.
Follow those steps (adjust paths):

Dependencies:
apt-get install build-essential git-core subversion cvs libgtk2.0-dev flex libxtst-dev libasound2-dev codelite liblo-dev libnotify-dev libxosd-dev libgconf2-dev libpulse-dev

1) Fetch kiku
mkdir -p ~/src && cd ~/src
git clone https://github.com/patricksebastien/kiku.git 


2) Download & Install wxWidgets
https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets/archive/WX_2_9_0_BRANCH.zip

PATCH
open src/unix/utilsunx.cpp:
	//data->exitcode = DoWaitForChild(data->pid, WNOHANG);
	data->exitcode = DoWaitForChild(data->pid);

include/wx/textentry.h
	bool AutoComplete(const wxArrayString& choices, int minimumkey = 1)
			{ return DoAutoCompleteStrings(choices, minimumkey); }   
	virtual bool DoAutoCompleteStrings(const wxArrayString& WXUNUSED(choices), int WXUNUSED(minimumkey))
			{ return false; }
        
src/gtk/textentry.cpp
	bool wxTextEntry::DoAutoCompleteStrings(const wxArrayString& choices, int minimumkey)
	{
		GtkEntry * const entry = GTK_ENTRY(GetEditable());
		wxCHECK_MSG(entry, false, "auto completion doesn't work with this control");
	 
		GtkListStore * const store = gtk_list_store_new(1, G_TYPE_STRING);
		GtkTreeIter iter;
	 
		for ( wxArrayString::const_iterator i = choices.begin();
			  i != choices.end();
			  ++i )
		{
			gtk_list_store_append(store, &iter);
			gtk_list_store_set(store, &iter,
							   0, (const gchar *)i->utf8_str(),
							   -1);
		}
	 
		GtkEntryCompletion * const completion = gtk_entry_completion_new();
		gtk_entry_completion_set_model(completion, GTK_TREE_MODEL(store));
		gtk_entry_completion_set_text_column(completion, 0);
		gtk_entry_completion_set_minimum_key_length(completion, minimumkey);
		gtk_entry_set_completion(entry, completion);
		g_object_unref(completion);
		return true;
