Blackbox window manager config tool

I know there are not many blackbox window manager users here but I just want to tell the few that are that there is a great configuration tool out there similar to what icepref does for icewm but has greater configurability.

Here is the website ( [bbconf.sourceforge.net...] )

There are rpms available, but Mandrake was finicky with them. It compiled from the source nicely.

If you use blackbox and are at all into eye-candy it really is a great tool because it allows you to manipulate settings on the fly and save them as a custom theme. Here is one I did [cgi-fun.hypermart.net].

It also has a easy to use menu editor, and a key binding editor.

A quick note about blackbox, I've found it very stable when compiled from the source and that it will occasionally crash when installed via rpm -- I have know idea why. When compiled from the source it never crashes.

The source is available at the blackbox homepage [blackbox.alug.org]
