fluxbox-remote - command line access to key commands for fluxbox(1)
fluxbox-remote(1) is designed to allow scripts to execute most key
commands from fluxbox(1). fluxbox-remote(1) will only work with
fluxbox(1): its communications with fluxbox(1) are not
standardized in any way. It is recommended that a standards-based tool such as
wmctrl(1) be used whenever possible, in order for scripts to work with
other window managers.
fluxbox-remote(1) uses the X11 protocol to communicate with
fluxbox(1). Therefore, it is possible for any user with access to the
X(7) server to use fluxbox-remote(1). For this reason, several
key commands have been disabled. Users should be aware of the security
implications when enabling fluxbox-remote(1), especially when using a
forwarded X(7) connection.
This resource in ~/.fluxbox/init must be set to
‘true’ in order for fluxbox-remote(1) to function. Please
read the CAVEATS first.
In order to communicate with fluxbox(1), the DISPLAY environment variable
must be set properly. Usually, the value should be ‘:0.0’.
