Good news for blackbox and blender users(Maya too)

I did not know it was hard coded in the original blackbox,

In fluxbox, and the windows variants BB4win and BBlean all let you just change the blackbox.rc ,bbkeys.rc or extensions.rc
for hotkeys and mouse .

Thanks for the special compile :slight_smile:


The Alt-key thing was actually the reason I moved away from Blackbox/Fluxbox, ~5 years ago, to Enlightenment 0.16 - which I still use this day. That was because of Maya, though. I remember that Blender did work, because it didn’t/doesn’t use Alt+mousebuttons. Or am I missing something…?

Anyway, great that you did this, migero! :cool:
