Texture
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A texture is a description of a particular visual element. It
consists of a text description, colors and a border width. Textures
are specified as follows:
<name>.appearance: description
<name>.backgroundColor: background color for solids
<name>.color1: initial color for gradients and interlaced solids
<name>.color2: target color for gradients and interlaced solids
<name>.borderWidth: width of the texture border in pixels
<name>.borderColor: color of the texture border
The BNF for the appearance is:
<appearance> := parentrelative |
[<bevel-type>] [<fill-type>] [interlaced] [border]
<bevel-type> := sunken | flat | raised
<fill-type> := gradient <gradient-type> | solid
<gradient-type> := crossdiagonal | rectangle | pyramid | pipecross |
elliptic | horizontal | vertical | diagonal
Color
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A color can be specified as one of the X11 color names (e.g.
'cornsilk3'), as a device-dependent color specification, or as a
device-independent color specification.
A device-dependent color specification has the following syntax
rgb:<red>/<green>/<blue> where <red>, <green>, <blue> := h | hh |
hhh | hhhh, and h := single hexidecimal digits
rgbi:<red>/<green>/<blue> where <red>, <green>, and <blue> are
floating-point values between 0.0 and 1.0, inclusive.
A device-independent color specification has the following syntax:
CIEXYZ:<X>/<Y>/<Z>
CIEuvY:<u>/<v>/<Y>
CIExyY:<x>/<y>/<Y>
CIELab:<L>/<a>/<b>
CIELuv:<L>/<u>/<v>
TekHVC:<H>/<V>/<C> where all values are floating-point values in
the range 0.0 to 1.0, inclusive.
See the XParseColor man page for more information on X11 color names.
Font
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A font is a description of the font. Depending on how Blackbox was
configure at build time, this can be a FontConfig font specification
(see http://www.fontconfig.org for more information on FontConfig), or
an XLFD font specification.
Note: If a FontConfig font specification is used, but Blackbox was not
built with Xft support, a default XLFD font is used. If an XLFD font
specification is used, Blackbox will always use this XLFD, regardless
of whether or not if Blackbox was build with Xft support.
Alignment
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Alignment is one of the following: Left, Center, Right
Width/Height/Margin
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
All width, height and margin resources are specified in pixels. In
general, width and height specify the full extent, where as margin
specifies the space around another element.
Setting the Background
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You can set the desktop background (i.e. root window) by specifying a
command to run in the 'rootCommand' resource. Blackbox includes the
'bsetroot' and 'bsetbg' utilities; their use is recommended. Also,
you can override the styles 'rootCommand' by putting your own in your
~/.blackboxrc file. This allows you to always use a custom
background, regardless of which style you are using.
Note: Questions about security have been raised about 'rootCommand.'
There is an inherent risk when using styles from 3rd parties; use them
with caution.
