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)
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'.
