bbpager - pager for the Blackbox window manager


bbpager is a pager for Blackbox and all other Blackbox-compatible Window Managers.

bbpager supports colors and gradients changing, moving windows (also to other desktop), and optional placement in the Blackbox slit.

It's also possible to define how the desktops are displayed, by defining the number of rows or columns to use.

By default bbpager reads the Blackbox style-file as defined in ~/.blackboxrc and copies as much of the style as possible. See blackbox(1) for further information.

If the resource bbpager.autoConfig is turned true, the tool will periodically check the main config files, ~/.blackboxrc for Blackbox users and bbpager.nobb for other WM's to see if they have changed. If so bbpager will reconfigure itself accordingly.

The location of bbpager's configuration files is as follows:

/etc/bbtools/bbpager.rc the global configuration file

$HOME/.bbtools/bbpager.rc the local configuration file
