BlackBox the W/M not that other 'Thing' that uses it same name.


in looking for information on BlackBox Window Manager, I get a lot of this "new" stuff on some cloud or maybe Linux OS by the same name Blackbox. grrr

Anyways, is it just me or does not BlackBox have a means to setup keyboard shortcuts, or am I just left with the main menu only option? Because I cannot find anything on it, yet. So I just thought I'd ask.

Looks unmaintained since the last release was in 2005. I take it you have it running.

Anyway, from the README file:
Quote:
With the start of the 0.60.x series Blackbox no longer handles any
keyboard shortcuts; instead it supports a communication protocol which
allows other programs to handle these and related tasks. If you'd like
to be able to use keyboard shortcuts with Blackbox, bbkeys (available at
http://http://bbkeys.sourceforge.net) can provide you with all the previous
functionality and more.
