2009 Fluxbox Keys File

April 10, 2009

This post will be of no interest to most of you. I am simply posting the keys file for my fluxbox configuration. I tend to forget to save it when I do a clean install and therefore loose it all the time. I am pretty lazy on getting it setup again. Finally did it after 4 months so I am posting it here for future reference.
