How do I get this fantastic application, I hear you say!!

Well! Let me just tell you. =:) There's several ways. First, I've made available source, RPM, source RPM, and debian packages below.... These are for the "released" versions of bbkeys. You could think of these below as "stable".

Thanks to the kind folks at Sourceforge.net, though, bbkeys also has its own CVS repository that is accessible and browsable.

To access the CVS version (latest and greatest at any given point in time) of bbkeys

  • cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/bbkeys login
  • cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/bbkeys co bbkeys

To browse and download CVS bbkeys from your web browser, go here...

And your choice of packages....


Okay then. Whoopsie. I forgot to mention this elsewhere and it makes sense to do it here.... bbkeys versions 0.8.4 and later are designed to work with blackbox 0.62.0 and greater. The reason for this is that blackbox's internals changed with 0.62.0, and to use bbkeys completely, you'll need to get bbkeys 0.8.4 or later. So then... on with the download choices... =:)

Memorable Quotes
When one compares the number of updates and changes to bbkeys and compares it to the number of updates and changes to blackbox in the last several months, one can see why it was a wise decision to remove it. I've always advocated shipping the blackbox source with bbkeys. This allows users to have easy keybinding support out of the box, and still be able to update bbkeys independently. Also, this will allow users to not have to worry about their windowmanager doing things other than managing windows when they don't need it to.
Cordially, scott
