Blackbox Themes

March 3rd, 2006

These are themes for the Blackbox window manager. Assuming you have Blackbox installed, all you have to do to install these is move the .tar.gz file to ~/.blackbox and uncompress them. If you don't already, you should have the following directories under your home directory:~/.blackbox
~/.blackbox/Backgrounds/While you're at it, go ahead and create a symbolic link from ~/.blackbox/Backgrounds/ to ~/.blackbox/backgrounds. You can do this by typing "ln -sf Backgrounds backgrounds" in the .blackbox directory.

Though the background files are supposed to live in ~/.blackbox/Backgrounds, many theme authors use the lowercase version when writing their themes. Setting up a link is the easiest way to adjust for this. (Thanks to James Bussard for pointing out a blatant typo in these instructions, which, if followed, would have rendered all these things unusable.)

I have found bbconf to be a great tool for blackbox configuration. Like wmakerconf, it also functions as a theme configurator and has a snertly GUI.
