the number of Xkb locked group. You may use mouse-clicks to change Xkb
locked group with mouse. Additionally, fookb can be configured to
execute a program on changing group.
fookb man page is based on WMMail.app man page. Program was written
To use fookb with the Window Maker Dock, simply drag the fookb icon to
the Window Maker Dock (if fookb was compiled with Window Maker

fookb will run command from "Command" value (see below), if this

message if this parameter is not defined. In any other case
command will not be run.

"Sound" is set to "Yes".
NB! Parameters in PropList config file take precedence over X
Here is an example of configuration file.
Icon1 = "/usr/local/share/fookb/icon1.xpm";
Icon2 = "/usr/local/share/fookb/icon2.xpm";
Icon3 = "/usr/local/share/fookb/icon3.xpm";
Icon4 = "/usr/local/share/fookb/icon4.xpm";
IconBoom = "/usr/local/share/fookb/crash.xpm";
Sound = "Yes";
Command = "/usr/bin/play /usr/local/share/fookb/click.au";
Here is an example of app-defaults file.
fookb defaults (for Window Maker enabled version).
fookb defaults (for Window Maker disabled version).
Sometimes fookb receives message about changing XKB group, but
message.state.group does not point to any existing XKB group. In this
case fookb will show IconBoom (from config file) picture.
As far as I know the only way to look at this bug is to run vmware.
This man page is [hopefully] up-to-date for version 3.0 of fookb.
