Port details
blackbox 0.70.1_4 x11-wm on this many watch lists=59 search for ports that depend on this port
Small and fast window manager for X11R6
Maintained by: A.J.Caines@halplant.com search for ports maintained by this maintainer
Port Added: unknown
License: MIT


Blackbox is the fast, lightweight window manager for the X Window System you
have been looking for, without all those annoying dependencies.  It is built
with C++ and contains completely original code (even though the graphics
implementation is similar to that of Window Maker).

Blackbox is written to the NetWM specification, which allows integration with
modern desktop managers including KDE and Gnome.

The port also provides root window changing tools, bsetroot and bsetbg, that
can be installed alone, without the window manager and accompanying files.

Remove `x11-wm/boxtools' port and provide an OPTION to install tools only.
Blackbox port is very light, and this separation does not really buys us
anything expect having to maintain two ports that operate on the very same
distfile.  I could have probably just completely removed tools-only mode,
but there might be folks out there who believe this is a useful feature.

danfe search for other commits by this committer
Add two patches to Blackbox:

Setting _NET_NUMBER_OF_DESKTOPS may cause Blackbox to explode.  The problem
is due to a bad loop condition in Screen.cc::clientMessageEvent().  If the
difference between the new number of desktops and initial workspaceCount()
is odd, the condition is always true, or at least until "number" underflows
or overflows.  BB will usually end up munching a lot of memory and dying
when it creates thousands of desktops first, though (tracker ID 2306646).

Blackbox does not handle transparency correctly in its slit, which causes
applications like x11/bbdock to display garbled graphics.  Patch suggested
by the author of BBDock.

Port revision will be bumped separately, as there are more changes coming.
