Blackbox Requirements

1 Software requirements
1.1 Mandatory
1.2 Highly recommended
1.3 Optional
2 Hardware requirements

1) Software requirements

1.1) Mandatory

Mandatory software includes the following:

1.2) Highly recommended

Be warned that Blackbox doesn't implement keyboard handling itself. You are hereby advised to grab and install the bbkeys keyboard handler if you want any kind of keyboard reaction (think Alt-Tab).

1.3) Optional

The packages listed below serve to enhance the Blackbox set of features. If you're going to compile Blackbox yourself, having them installed or not will determine whether the corresponding features will be present in the resulting binary. However, if you're going to use the binary Blackbox package that your distribution provides, it all comes down to how Blackbox was compiled by the distro maintainers. Usually a dependence will be signalled automatically by the package manager of your distro and you will be prompted to also install any additional required packages.

So, starting with 0.70.x, Blackbox can use the following:

2) Hardware requirements

Blackbox has always been and will always be built around minimalism. As such, it requires small amounts of RAM and CPU power, which makes it especially well suited for older hardware.

In case you want figures and additional details please see BlackboxPerformance.
