bbkeys


Hi all!

I finally got X running and was now playing around with some window managers. blackbox seems to be good for my purposes but I have a problem with bbkeys.
It does simply not work
When trying to execute "bbkeys" I always get "BaseDisplay::BaseDisplay: connection to X server failed"...
Can anyone tell me how to get bbkeys working?
And, how can I get bbkeys started every time blackbox is started?

thx a lot
nic

strange error to get, make sure you've got the right version for your version of BB (0.62 is the newest). nad to make it load automatically, add it to your .xinitrc file OR .Xclients, whichever one already contains the 'exec blackbox' line.

bbkeys -i &
exec blackbox
