       Blackbox Users:

       By  default  bbtime  reads the Blackbox style-file as defined in .blackboxrc and copies as
       much of the style as possible. The result is an application which looks  a  lot  like  the
       toolbar. Further configuration options can be found in  Most likely you want
       to  change  these  options,  copy  this  file   to   somewhere   in   your   homedir   (eg
       blackbox/bbtime.config)  and  edit it. Edit the file .blackboxrc and add or edit the line:
       bbtime.configFile: <your config file>.

       WARNING: You have to define the entire PATH.

       All style options set by reading the Blackbox-style file can be overridden by placing them
       in bbtime.config (and changing them). See for all possible options.

       Make  sure  the  file  .bbtoolsrc  does  not exist, else the configuration style for other
       Window Managers will be used.

       Users of other Window managers:

       By default bbtime reads the bbtoolsrc and bbtime.nobb config files.  If you want to define
       your   personal  config-file  copy  bbtoolsrc  to  your  homedir  as  ./.bbtoolsrc.   Copy
       bbtime.nobb somewhere in your  homedir.   Edit  .bbtoolsrc  and  add  or  edit  the  line:
       bbtime.configFile: <your config file>.

       WARNING: You have to define the entire PATH.


       Press the right mouse-button on the envelope to cause bbtime to re-read its settings.


       bbtime automatically copies the style of the blackbox toolbar. It copies:

       toolbar                  -> bbtime.frame
       toolbar.label            -> bbtime.label
       toolbar.color            -> bbtime.frame.color
       toolbar.colorTo          -> bbtime.frame.colorTo
       toolbar.label.color      -> bbtime.label.color
       toolbar.label.colorTo    -> bbtime.label.colorTo
       toolbar.textColor        -> bbtime.textColor
       bevelWidth               -> bbtime.bevelWidth
       WARNING: if .bbtoolsrc is defined it won't copy the blackbox style.

       For the meaning of the different resources see the comments in the config-files.
