bbrun is a small but very useful application. It makes it convenient to quickly
execute commands from the blackbox window manager. bbrun is very similar to
KDE's Alt+F2 Run Command dialog box. When launched, it occupies a small portion
of the desktop and docks itself to the right side of the screen. The run dialog
is opened by clicking a tiny bbrun icon.
You don't necessarily need blackbox for this program to work. It looks just as
good in fluxbox, but it won't look the same in other window managers.
