bbkeys — a general XWindow keygrabber

Synopsis

bbkeys [OPTION]

Description

bbkeys is the keygrabber for the blackbox window manager. bbkeys handles all keybindings and keyboard shortcuts for blackbox. It uses blackbox's Image classes for rendering its look and feel so that bbkeys will render itself to match whatever blackbox style is used. It is highly configurable either via the bbconf GUI utility or the (now deprecated) bbkeysconf GUI utility or by hand-editting bbkeys's config file.

Usage

On startup, bbkeys reads $HOME/.bbkeysrc, which you can edit by hand or through bbconf or bbkeysconf. This is now configurable through a command-line switch as show in Options.
