       bbrun - An elegant tool for the Blackbox window manager that runs commands


       bbrun [OPTIONS] [-- [-display <display>]]...


       bbrun  is  a  small but very useful application. It makes it convenient to quickly execute
       commands from the blackbox or fluxbox window managers. bbrun  is  very  similar  to  KDE's
       Alt+F2  Run  Command dialog box. When launched, it occupies a small portion of the desktop
       and docks itself to the right side of the screen.  The run dialog is opened by clicking on
       the tiny bbrun window.

       You  don't  necessarily  need  blackbox for this program to work. It looks just as good in
       fluxbox, but it won't look the same in other window managers.




       -a, --advanced - advanced mode, shows more options than the normal command entry box.  The
       default is for it to be in normal (traditional/simple) mode.

       -h, --help - this help screen

       -i, --history-file=<history file> - set the history file to use. (default:

       -v, --version - print the version number

       -w, --withdraw - withdrawn mode, will go straight to command entry box

       Options that must occur after '--' if they are used:

       -display <display> - set the display that the gearbox should show up on


       bbrun  can  be run in normal mode where it creates an icon that sits in the slit.  You can
       then click on the gear icon to make the text entry window popup.  You can also  run  bbrun
       in  withdrawn  mode by specifying the -w flag. This is ideal for use with the key shortcut
       program bbkeys since it will jump straight to the text entry screen.  bbrun also  supports
       the  'escape'  and  'enter'  keys  for those of you who like to use the mouse as little as

       bbrun keeps a history of your most recent commands. The history  list  is  stored  in  the
       '.bbrun_history'  file  in  your  home directory. If the file does not exist it is created

       Also keep in mind that you need quotes when you specify arguments  with  spaces  in  them.
       eg. mpg123 '/mp3/Creed - Higher.mp3'
