Okay, I read up more on KDM and found out that blackbox is
started from a config file called blackbox.desktop, which
in turn points to the blackbox binary.
I created a script that runs blackbox and bbkeys
simultaniously (blackbox & bbkeys), then pointed
blackbox.desktop to the script. It works, but I have to
exit blackbox and _then_ exit bbkeys to return to the KDM
login screen (a little less annoying).
Is there a better way of doing this?
