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
i agree completely, that is why i will be forking the blackbox code in order to create 'whitesphere'. it will be based on imlibs 1, 2, and 3 and also svgalib and libc.so. whitesphere will also support the .bmp format, which is the best. and if you have a monster goober X60069-87 video board with 88 teraglobs of VsDzXram, you will be able to take advantage of 46 frame 3d animated root window icons (with sound effects).

oh and also, whitesphere will have support for an infinate number of user configureable titlebar buttons. each button will light up and play a different musical note through the pc speaker when pressed, and can be bound to a hotkey. this way, you can use your desktop as a keyboard controlled musical instrument. the default configuration comes wired to play the finale of chopin's third piano sonata every time you type ctrl+1, now how cool is that!
