Try getting bbconf too. It works together with bbkeys and the link is at blackbox homepage . It allows you to have total control of your desktop (style, background, font size, keyboard shortcut). It's a must have . And usually compiles easly too

bbconf didn't work to install for me, for some reason, don't know which, forgot them but doing it without is not that terrible,
well, google a bit for blackbox themes, the files to edit are in /usr/local/share/blackbox/styles/

i don't get your frist question, one desktop instead of four? it doesn't mind if you have four desktops, you will just take informations from the one you use right now,
to configurate blackbox install bbconf, if you have done this already right bbconf in terminal, in bbconf you can edit nearly anything bout blackbox you want

I think he meant workspaces like gnome or kde which has four by default. Click in blackbox's tool bar and choose add or create workspace (I'm on gnome right now so I can't say for sure). I think it's with mouse left button, but I'm not quite sure

when I was configuring bbconf it went smooth till:

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.1 (20021021)) (headers and libraries) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.

Where r the headers and libraries?

ah well, now i know which problem i had myself, i did once download qt source file, compiled it myself and everything, than you can run bbconf, but i'm to lazy to do it
i think this because qt was installed by rpm, and bbconf is a source file, if you installe something from tar.gz it often doesn't find some programms, got the same problem all the time

you have to install gtk-devel if I'm not mistaken. They are shipped within your Redhat CD's .
