FLUXBOX-KEYS(5)			Fluxbox	Manual		       FLUXBOX-KEYS(5)

NAME
       fluxbox-keys - keyboard shortcuts configuration for fluxbox(1)

SYNOPSIS
       ~/.fluxbox/keys

SYNTAX
       Variable	parameters are shown in	emphasis: argument

       Optional	parameters are shown in	square brackets: [argument]

       All other characters shown are required verbatim. Whitespace is
       required	where shown, but it is fine to add more	whitespace.

DESCRIPTION
       The keys	file defines the keyboard shortcuts for	fluxbox(1).

       You can customize fluxbox's key handling	through	the ~/.fluxbox/keys
       file. The file consists of lines	of the basic format:

       [modifiers] key :'command' [arguments ...]

       The space between the key and the : before the command is mandatory.

       All modifiers and commands are case-insensitive.	Some command arguments
       (especially those that will be passed to	the shell) are case-sensitive.
       Some key	names are case-sensitive.

       Lines beginning with a #	or ! are considered comments and are unread by
       fluxbox.

       You will	need to	"reload" fluxbox after editing the keys	file so	it
       picks up	your change.

MODIFIERS
       You can get a list of possible modifiers	by calling `xmodmap -pm'. This
       also shows you to which keys the	modifiers are mapped, but the
       following modifiers are most commonly used:

       Shift Control Mod1 Mod4

       where Mod1 is the Alt key on the	PC keyboard and	Mod4 is	usually	a key
       branded with a familiar company logo.

       There are also some special modifiers that refer	to mouse button	events

	   OnDesktop
	       The mouse cursor	is over	the desktop (root window), and not any
	       window.

	   OnToolbar
	       The mouse cursor	is over	the toolbar (which is normally at the
	       bottom of the screen).

	   OnWindow
	       The mouse cursor	is over	a window.

	   OnTitlebar
	       The mouse cursor	is over	a window's titlebar.

	   OnTab
	       The mouse cursor	is over	a tab.

	   Double
	       Limits this action to double-clicks only.

   Combining Modifiers
       To combine two or more modifiers, just list them	(space-delimited) in
       any order.

KEYS
       You may specify a key by	its key	name (for example, a or	space) or by
       its numeric keycode (for	example, 38 or 0xf3).

       If you don't know the name of a key, you	can run	xev(1) in a terminal,
       push the	key, and see the name in the output. If	you have some
       "special" keys that do not produce a key	name in	the output of xev(1),
       you can just use	the keycode (NOT the keysym!) in your keys file.

       Commands	can also be bound to mouse events (N denotes the number	of the
       button, eg. 1 is	the primary button, 4/5	are the	wheel buttons):

       MouseN
	   The mouse button N is pressed down and held.

       ClickN
	   The mouse button N is clicked (pressed and released with no
	   movement in between)

       MoveN
	   The mouse button N is currently held, the bound action is triggered
	   as often as the mouse moves.

       There are some special "keys" that let you bind events to non-keyboard
       events:

       ChangeWorkspace
	   Fires when the workspace changes. This can be used to change
	   backgrounds or do anything else you like when you switch to a new
	   workspace. See the EXAMPLES below for one idea.

	   Warning
	   Use caution with this event!	For example, do	NOT bind this to any
	   action that changes your current workspace. If you break your
	   fluxbox with	this feature, you get to keep the pieces.

CHAINING
       Key bindings can	be chained in a	fashion	similar	to Emacs key bindings
       using the syntax:

       modifiers-1 key-1 modifiers-2 key-2 :'command' [arguments ...]*

       To abort	a chained command part-way through typing it, press the	<ESC>
       key.

       To Bind CTRL+C CTRL+X (Which means, press CTRL+C	then CTRL+X) to	quit
       fluxbox.

	   Control c Control x :Quit

KEYMODES
       A specific set of key mappings can be activated and de-activated
       on-the-fly using	what are called	keymodes. The syntax to	define a
       mapping in a keymode is:

       keymode:	modifiers key :'command' [arguments ...]

       Where keymode is	any alpha-numeric string name.

       When this keymode is activated (see the KeyMode command below), all
       bindings	prefaced by that keymode name become active (and all other
       keybindings will	be deactivated)	until the keymode changes again.

COMMANDS
       Some commands have multiple names which are shown below as
	   CMD1	| CMD2

       Related commands	have been grouped below	as
	   CMD1	/ CMD2

       The commands are	broken up into sections	as follows

	   o   Mouse Commands

	   o   Window Commands

	   o   Workspace Commands

	   o   Menu Commands

	   o   Window Manager Commands

	   o   Special Commands

   Mouse Commands
       These commands may only be bound	to mouse buttons (plus modifiers), not
       keystrokes. In all cases, the action finishes when the mouse button is
       released.

       StartMoving
	   Start dragging to move the window.

       StartResizing [corner]
	   Start dragging to resize the	window as if you had grabbed the
	   window at the specified corner.

	   By default corner is	BottomRight, but may be	overridden with	one
	   of:
	       NearestCorner NearestEdge NearestCornerOrEdge Center TopLeft
	       Top TopRight Left Right BottomLeft Bottom BottomRight

	   If NearestCornerOrEdge is specified the size	of the corner can also
	   be specified	to be the larger of one	or two following numbers:
	   [pixel-size [percent-size]] or percent-size%, where percent-size is
	   the percentage of half the window width or height. If no size is
	   given, it defaults to 50 pixels and 30%.

       StartTabbing
	   Start dragging to add this window to	another's tabgroup.

       ActivateTab
	   Activates the tab underneath	the mouse.

   Window Commands
       These commands ordinarily affect	only the currently focused window. The
       OnWindow	modifier and ForEach command may affect	the window that	is
       used.

       Minimize	| MinimizeWindow | Iconify
	   Minimize the	current	window,	equivalent to the window button.

       Maximize	| MaximizeWindow
	   Maximize the	current	window,	equivalent to the window button.

       MaximizeHorizontal / MaximizeVertical
	   Maximize the	current	window in one direction	only, leaving the
	   other dimension unchanged.

       Fullscreen
	   Resize the window's content to fit the whole	screen,	without	any
	   window decoration.

       Raise / Lower
	   Reorder this	window to the top or bottom of the window stack,
	   within its current layer. See fluxbox(1) for	a discussion of
	   layers.

       RaiseLayer / LowerLayer [offset]
	   Raise the window up to the layer above, or lower it to the layer
	   below. See fluxbox(1) for a discussion of layers.

       SetLayer	layer
	   Move	the window to the specified layer.  layer should be one	of
	   AboveDock, Dock, Top, Normal, Bottom, Desktop. See fluxbox(1) for a
	   discussion of layers.

       Close
	   Close the current window, equivalent	to the window button.

       Kill | KillWindow
	   Close a window that's not responding	to Close, like using xkill(1).

       Shade | ShadeWindow
	   Toggle the shaded state of the current window, equivalent to	the
	   window button. A shaded window appears as only the title bar.

       ShadeOn / ShadeOff
	   Set the shaded state	of the window to On / Off.

       Stick | StickWindow
	   Toggle the sticky state of the current window, equivalent to	the
	   window button. A sticky window is visible on	all workspaces.

       SetDecor	decor
	   Sets	which window decorations will be shown.	 decor has the same
	   format as the `[Deco]' parameter in the apps	file. See
	   fluxbox-apps(5) for more info.

       ToggleDecor
	   Toggles the presence	of the window decorations (title bar, window
	   buttons, and	resize bar).

       NextTab / PrevTab
	   Cycle to the	next / previous	tab in the current tab group.

       Tab number
	   Cycle to the	given tab in the current tab group, where 1 is the
	   first tab. A	negative number	counts from the	end of the tab group
	   (-1 is the last tab,	-2 is the next-to-last,	etc.).

       MoveTabRight / MoveTabLeft
	   Reorder the tabs in the current tab group, swapping the current tab
	   with	the one	to the right / left.

       DetachClient
	   Remove the current tab from the tab group, placing it in its	own
	   window.

       ResizeTo	width[%] height[%]
	   Resizes the window to the given width and height. If	the value is
	   given in percent, then the window size will be based	on the current
	   screen's size.

       Resize delta-width[%] delta-height[%]
	   Resizes the window relative to the current width and	height.	If the
	   value is given in percent, then the window size will	be based on
	   the current window's	size.

       ResizeHorizontal	delta-width[%] / ResizeVertical	delta-height[%]
	   Resizes the window in one dimension only. If	the value is given in
	   percent, then the window size will be based on the current window's
	   size.

       MoveTo x[%] y[%]	[anchor]
	   Moves the window to the given coordinates, given in pixels or
	   relatively to the current screen size if % is specified after the
	   value.

	   If either x or y is set to \*, that coordinate will be ignored, and
	   the movement	will only take place in	one dimension.

	   The default anchor is the upper left	corner,	but this may be
	   overridden with one of:
	       TopLeft Left BottomLeft Top Center Bottom TopRight Right
	       BottomRight

       Move delta-x delta-y
	   Moves the window relative to	its current position. Positive numbers
	   refer to right and down, and	negative to left and up, respectively.

       MoveRight d / MoveLeft d	/ MoveUp d / MoveDown d
	   Moves the window relative to	its current position by	the number of
	   pixels specified in d. If the number	is negative, it	moves in the
	   opposite direction.

       TakeToWorkspace workspace / SendToWorkspace workspace
	   Sends you along with	the current window to the selected workspace.
	   SendToWorkspace just	sends the window. The first workspace is
	   number 1, not 0.

       TakeToNextWorkspace [offset] / TakeToPrevWorkspace [offset]
	   Sends you along with	the current window to the next or previous
	   workspace. If you set offset	to a value greater than	the default of
	   1, it will move you that number of workspaces ahead or behind. If
	   you go beyond the end of the	currently defined workspaces, it will
	   wrap	around to the other end	automatically.

       SendToNextWorkspace [offset] / SendToPrevWorkspace [offset]
	   Identical to	the "TakeTo..."	commands, but again this sends only
	   the window, and does	not move you away from your current workspace.

       SetAlpha	[alpha [unfocused-alpha]]
	   Sets	the alpha value	of a window.

	   Putting a + or - in front of	the value adds or subtracts from the
	   current value. A plain integer sets the value explicitly.

	   no arguments
	       Resets both focused and unfocused settings to default opacity.

	   one argument
	       Changes both focused and	unfocused alpha	settings.

	   two arguments
	       First value becomes the focused alpha, second becomes the
	       unfocused alpha value.

       SetHead number
	   Moves the window to the given display head. Only available when
	   fluxbox has been compiled with Xinerama support.

       SendToNextHead [offset] / SendToPrevHead	[offset]
	   Sends the current window to the next/previous display head. If you
	   specify an offset greater than 1, it	will move the window that many
	   heads. If this takes	the window beyond the total number of heads,
	   it will wrap	around to the beginning.

       SetXProp	PROP=value
	   Sets	the xproperty PROP of the current window to value. Delete the
	   content of PROP by using PROP=.

   Workspace Commands
       These commands affect the entire	workspace (or "desktop"	as it is
       sometimes called).

       AddWorkspace / RemoveLastWorkspace
	   Adds	or removes a workspace from the	end of the list	of workspaces.

       NextWorkspace [n] / PrevWorkspace [n] / RightWorkspace [n] /
       LeftWorkspace [n]
	   Switch to the Next /	Previous workspace. All	versions accept	an
	   offset value	n, which defaults to 1 and refers to the number	of
	   workspaces to move at one time. {Next,Prev}Workspace	wrap around
	   when	going past the last workspace, whereas {Right,Left}Workspace
	   do not.

       Workspace number
	   Jumps to the	given workspace	number.	The first workspace is 1.

       NextWindow [{options}] [pattern]	/ PrevWindow [{options}] [pattern]
	   Focuses the next / previous window in the focus list.

	   options is one or more of the following, space delimited:

	       static
		   Instead of moving in	order of most-recent focus, move in
		   order of when the window was	opened (or, the	order shown in
		   the iconbar).

	       groups
		   Only	include	the current tab	in windows with	multiple tabs.

	       If pattern arguments are	supplied, only windows that match all
	       the patterns are	considered - all others	are skipped. See the
	       section CLIENT PATTERNS below for more information.

	       This pair of commands has a special side-effect when the
	       keybinding used has a modifier -	It will	temporarily raise the
	       cycled window to	the front so you can see it, but if you
	       continue	holding	down the modifier and press the	key again (For
	       example,	keep holding "Alt" while you tap the "Tab" key a few
	       times), fluxbox will lower the window again when	you move on to
	       the next	one. This allows you to	preview	the windows in order,
	       but does	not change the order in	doing so.

       NextGroup [{options}] [pattern] / PrevGroup [{options}] [pattern]
	   Equivalent to NextWindow / PrevWindow above,	but with the groups
	   option forced on.

       GotoWindow number [{options}] [pattern]
	   Focuses and activates the window at position	number in the focus
	   list. The options and pattern arguments have	the same meaning as
	   NextWindow above.

       Activate	[pattern] | Focus [pattern]
	   With	pattern, this is an alias for GoToWindow 1 pattern. Without,
	   this	behaves	like a window command, so that OnWindow	events can
	   change the focused window.

       Attach pattern
	   Combines all	windows	that match the pattern into a single tab
	   group. See CLIENT PATTERNS for more about the pattern arguments.

       FocusLeft / FocusRight /	FocusUp	/ FocusDown
	   Focus to the	next window which is located in	the direction
	   specified.

       ArrangeWindows pattern /	ArrangeWindowsVertical pattern /
       ArrangeWindowsHorizontal	pattern
	   Tries to arrange all	windows	on the current workspace so that they
	   overlap the least amount possible.  ArrangeWindowsVertical prefers
	   vertical splits (windows side by side), whereas
	   ArrangeWindowsHorizontal prefers horizontal splits (windows on top
	   of eachother). See CLIENT PATTERNS for more about the pattern
	   arguments.

       ArrangeWindowsStackLeft pattern / ArrangeWindowsStackRight pattern
	   Similar to ArrangeWindows, these commands arrange windows on	the
	   current workspace. The currently focussed window is used as the
	   main	window,	and will fill half the screen, while the other windows
	   are tiled on	the other half of the screen as	if they	were tiled
	   with	ArrangeWindows.	 ArrangeWindowsStackLeft puts the main window
	   on the RIGHT	hand side of the screen, and the tiled windows are on
	   the LEFT hand side of the screen.  ArrangeWindowsStackRight puts
	   the main window on the LEFT hand side of the	screen,	and the	tiled
	   windows are on the RIGHT hand side of the screen.

       ArrangeWindowsStackTop pattern /	ArrangeWindowsStackBottom pattern
	   Behaves just	like ArrangeWindowsStackLeft and
	   ArrangeWindowsStackRight.  ArrangeWindowsStackBottom	places the
	   main	window on the TOP half of the screen, and the tiled windows on
	   the bottom half of the screen.  ArrangeWindowsStackTop places the
	   main	window on the BOTTOM half of the screen	and the	tiled windows
	   on the top half of the screen.

       ShowDesktop
	   Minimizes all windows on the	current	workspace. If they are already
	   all minimized, then it restores them.

       Deiconify mode destination
	   Deiconifies windows (or, restores from a minimized state).

	   Where mode may be one of:

	       All
		   All icons across all	workspaces.

	       AllWorkspace
		   All icons on	the current workspace.

	       Last
		   The last icon across	all workspaces.

	       LastWorkspace (default)
		   The last icon on the	current	workspace.

	   And destination may be one of:

	       Current (default)
		   Deiconify to	the current workspace.

	       OriginQuiet
		   Deiconify to	the window's original workspace, but does so
		   in the background, without moving you there.

       SetWorkspaceName	name / SetWorkspaceNameDialog
	   Sets	the name of the	current	workspace.

       CloseAllWindows
	   Closes all windows on all desktops.

   Menu	Commands
       These commands open or close fluxbox popup menus. For more information
       on what these menus contain or how to configure them, see fluxbox(1).

       RootMenu
	   Opens the root menu.	See ROOT MENU in fluxbox-menu(5) for details.

       WorkspaceMenu
	   Opens a menu	showing	all workspaces and windows. See	Workspace Menu
	   in fluxbox(1) for details.

       WindowMenu
	   Opens a menu	containing actions for the current window. See WINDOW
	   MENU	in fluxbox-menu(5) for details.

	   ClientMenu [pattern]
	       Opens a menu that contains all windows. If you specify a
	       pattern,	only matching windows will be in the menu. Selecting a
	       window will jump	to that	workspace and raise the	window.	See
	       CLIENT PATTERNS below for more details on the pattern argument.

	   CustomMenu path
	       Opens a custom menu file. This path must	be a valid menu	file
	       in the same format as detailed by the ROOT MENU section of
	       fluxbox-menu(5).

	   HideMenus
	       Hide all	fluxbox	popup menus.

   Window Manager Commands
       These commands affect the Window	Manager, or more than one window.

       Restart [path]
	   Restarts fluxbox. This does not close any running applications. If
	   the optional	path is	a path to an executable	window manager,	that
	   manager is started in place of fluxbox.

       Quit | Exit
	   Exits fluxbox. This will normally cause X to	stop as	well and
	   terminate all existing applications,	returning you to the login
	   manager or console.

       Reconfig	| Reconfigure
	   Reloads all fluxbox configuration files including the keys file,
	   apps	file, and init file, if	they have changed.

       SetStyle	path
	   Sets	the current style to that given	in path, which must be the
	   full	path to	a fluxbox style.

       ReloadStyle
	   Reloads only	the current style. Useful after	editing	a style	which
	   is currently	in use.

       ExecCommand args	... | Exec args	... | Execute args ...
	   Probably the	most-used binding of all. Passes all the arguments to
	   your	$SHELL (or /bin/sh if $SHELL is	not set). You can use this to
	   launch applications,	run shell scripts, etc.	Since all arguments
	   are passed verbatim to the shell, you can use environment
	   variables, pipes, or	anything else the shell	can do.	Note that
	   processes only see environment variables that were set before
	   fluxbox started (such as in ~/.fluxbox/startup), or any that	are
	   set via the Export or SetEnv	commands, below. See fluxbox(1)	for
	   more	details	on the ENVIRONMENT and \~/.fluxbox/startup file.

       CommandDialog
	   Pops	up a dialog box	that lets you type in any of these commands
	   manually.

       SetEnv name value | Export name=value
	   Sets	an environment variable	in Fluxbox. It will be passed to any
	   applications	spawned	by any future ExecCommand commands.

       SetResourceValue	resourcename resourcevalue | SetResourceValueDialog
	   Sets	a fluxbox resource value, which	are normally stored in the
	   init	file. See fluxbox(1) for more details on available resources
	   and allowed values.

   Special Commands
       These commands have special meanings or behaviors.

       MacroCmd	{command1} {command2} {command3} ...
	   Allows you to execute more than one command with one	keybinding.
	   The commands	will be	executed in series. The	{} brackets are
	   literally required, as in the following example:

	       MacroCmd	{MoveTo	0 0} {ResizeTo 1280 800}

       Delay {command} [microseconds]
	   Delays running command for the given	amount of time.	If the same
	   key binding is activated again, the timer will be restarted.

       ToggleCmd {command1} {command2} ...
	   Alternates between the commands. On the first press of the bound
	   key,	runs command1. On the next press, runs command2.

       BindKey keybinding
	   Adds	the given keybinding (which must be a valid key	binding	as
	   defined in the DESCRIPTION section above) to	your keys file.

       KeyMode keymode [return-keybinding]
	   Activates the named keymode (or, all	key binding lines prefaced
	   with	the same keymode:) and deactivates all others until the
	   return-keybinding (by default Escape) is pressed. The default
	   keymode is named default.

       ForEach {command} [{condition}] | Map {command} [{condition}]
	   Runs	the given command (normally one	from the Window	Commands
	   section above) on each window. If you specify a condition (See
	   Conditions, below) the action will be limited to matching windows.

       If {condition} {then-command} [{else-command}] |	Cond {condition}
       {then-command} [{else-command}]
	   If the condition command returns true, then run the then-command,
	   otherwise run the optional else-command. See	Conditions below for
	   more	information on the condition argument.

   Conditions
       These special commands are used to match	windows	conditionally. They
       are commonly used by the	If and ForEach command.

       Matches pattern
	   Returns true	if the current window matches the given	pattern. See
	   CLIENT PATTERNS below for details on	the pattern syntax.

	   If your key binding uses the	OnWindow modifier, it matches against
	   the window you clicked, not the currently focused window.

	   To check other windows besides the currently	focused	one, see the
	   Every and Some conditions below.

       Some condition
	   Returns true	if any window on any workspace (not just the currently
	   focused one)	matches	the condition.

       Every condition
	   Returns true	if every window	on every workspace (not	just the
	   current one)	matches	the condition.

       Not condition
	   Returns true	if condition returns false, and	vice-versa.

       And {condition1}	{condition2} [{condition3} ...]
	   Returns true	if and only if all given conditions return true.

       Or {condition1} {condition2} [{condition3} ...]
	   Returns true	if any of the listed conditions	return true.

       Xor {condition1}	{condition2} [{condition3} ...]
	   Returns the boolean xor of the truth	values for all conditions
	   listed.

CLIENT PATTERNS
       Many of the more	advanced commands take a pattern argument, which
       allows you to direct the	action at a specific window or set of windows
       which match the properties specified in the pattern.

       A pattern looks like this
	   ([propertyname[!]=]regexp) ...

       Match definitions are enclosed in parentheses (...), and	if no
       propertyname is given then Name is assumed. The regexp can contain any
       regular expression, or the special value	[current], which matches the
       corresponding value of the currently focused window. See	regex(7) for
       more information	on acceptable regular expressions.

       propertyname is not case	sensitive, whereas the regexp is.

       If you specify multiple (pattern) arguments, this implies an AND
       condition - All specified patterns must match.

       You can use = to	test for equality or !=	to test	for inequality.

       The following values are	accepted for propertyname

	   Name
	       A string, corresponding to the CLASSNAME	property (The first
	       field of	WM_CLASS from the output of the	xprop(1) utility).

	   Class
	       A string, corresponding to the CLASSCLASS property (The second
	       field of	WM_CLASS from the output of the	xprop(1) utility).

	   Title
	       A string, corresponding to the window title (WM_NAME from
	       xprop(1)).

	   Role
	       A string, corresponding to the ROLE property (WM_WINDOW_ROLE
	       from xprop(1)).

	   Transient
	       Either yes or no, depending on whether the window is transient
	       (typically, a popup dialog) or not.

	   Maximized
	       Either yes or no, depending on whether the window is maximized
	       or not.

	   MaximizedHorizontal
	       Either yes or no, depending on whether the window is maximized
	       horizontally or not.

	   MaximizedVertical
	       Either yes or no, depending on whether the window is maximized
	       vertically or not.

	   Minimized
	       Either yes or no, depending on whether the window is minimized
	       (iconified) or not.

	   Fullscreen
	       Either yes or no, depending on whether the window is fullscreen
	       or not.

	   Shaded
	       Either yes or no, depending on whether the window is shaded or
	       not.

	   Stuck
	       Either yes or no, depending on whether the window is sticky (on
	       all workspaces) or not.

	   FocusHidden
	       Either yes or no, depending on whether the window has asked to
	       be left off the focus list (or, the alt-tab list), or not.

	   IconHidden
	       Either yes or no, depending on whether the window has asked to
	       be left off the icon list (or, the taskbar), or not.

	   Urgent
	       Either yes or no, depending on whether the window has the
	       urgent hint set.

	   Workspace
	       A number	corresponding to the workspace number to which the
	       window is attached. The first workspace here is 0. You may also
	       use [current] to	match the currently visible workspace.

	   WorkspaceName
	       A string	corresponding to the name of the workspace to which
	       the window is attached.

	   Head
	       The number of the display head to which the window is attached.
	       You may match this against the special value [mouse] which
	       refers to the head where	the mouse pointer currently resides.

	   Layer
	       The string name of the window's layer, which is one of
	       AboveDock, Dock,	Top, Normal, Bottom, Desktop

	   Screen
	       The number of the currently used	screen.	If the setup of	the
	       running xserver involves	independent screens (not Xinerama),
	       the $DISPLAY environment	contains something like	:0.1 or	:1.0.
	       The part	after the dot (.) is the number	of the screen.

	   @XPROP
	       A string, corresponding to any xproperty	(Use either the
	       xprop(1)	utility	or the SetXProp	command	to set a xproperty to
	       a window)

       Matches any windows with	the CLASSNAME of "xterm".

	   (xterm)

       Matches any windows with	the same CLASSNAME as the currently focused
       window.

	   (Name=[current])

       Matches any windows on the same head as the mouse but on	a different
       layer than the currently	focused	window.

	   (Head=[mouse]) (Layer!=[current])

       Matches any windows having a xproperty named FOO	with "bar" in it.

	   (@FOO=.*bar.*)

FILES
       ~/.fluxbox/keys
	   This	is the default location	for the	keybinding definitions.

       /usr/X11R6/include/X11/keysymdef.h
	   X key names are in this file.

       /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XKeysymDB
	   X key names are also	in this	file.

RESOURCES
       session.keyFile:	location
	   This	may be set to override the location of the keybinding
	   definitions.

ENVIRONMENT
       Remember	that ExecCommand command can take advantage of other
       environment variables if	they are set before fluxbox is started,	or via
       the Export or SetEnv commands. For example, if $TERM is set, it could
       be use like this:

	   Mod1	x :ExecCommand $TERM

       For more	information about environment variables, see your shell's
       manual.

EXAMPLES
       Here are	some interesting and/or	useful examples	you can	do with	your
       keys file.

	   # Mod4+drag moves a window
	   OnWindow Mod4 Mouse1	:StartMoving

	   # If	any xterm windows are open, cycle through them.	If none	are open, open
	   # one:
	   Mod4	t :If {Some Matches (xterm)} {NextWindow (xterm)} {Exec	xterm}

	   # Set a different wallpaper on every	workspace:
	   ChangeWorkspace :Exec fbsetbg ~/.fluxbox/bg$(xprop -root _NET_CURRENT_DESKTOP | awk '{print $3}').png

	   # Focusses the next window with it's	xproperty 'PROP' set to	'foo'
	   Mod4	p Mod4 Tab :NextWindow (@PROP=foo)
