GDNC(1)			     GNUstep System Manual		       GDNC(1)

NAME
       gdnc - GNUstep Distributed Notification Center

SYNOPSIS
       gdnc

DESCRIPTION
       The  gdnc  daemon is used by GNUstep programs to	send notifications and
       messages	to one another.	 By default it uses private inter-process com-
       munications  accessible	only  to  the  curtrent	user on	the machine on
       which it	is running (where the operating	system supports	them).

       Every user needs	to have	his own	instance of gdnc running.  While  gdnc
       will  be	 started  automatically	 as soon as it is needed, it is	recom-
       mended to start gdnc in a  personal  login  script  like	 ~/.bashrc  or
       ~/.cshrc.   Alternatively  (if you have no command-line tools which use
       distributed notifications) you can launch gdnc when your	windowing sys-
       tem  or the window manager is started. For example, on systems with X11
       you can launch gdnc from	your .xinitrc script or	alternatively -	if you
       are  running  Window Maker - put	it in Window Maker's autostart script.
       See the GNUstep Build Guide for a sample	startup	script.

OPTIONS
       To attach gdnc to a remote session use the

       -NSHost hostname
	      argument.

       To run a	copy of	the server to handle public  notifications  (available
       to all users on the local machine)

       -GSPublic YES

       To  run	a  copy	 of  the server	to handle network-public notifications
       (available to all users able to connect to the  local  machine  on  the
       network)

       -GSNetwork YES

DIAGNOSTICS
       gdomap  -L GDNCServer will lookup instances of gdnc which were launched
       with the	NSHost,	GSPublic, or GSNetwork command line arguments.

       Alternatively, gdomap -N	will list all registered names	on  the	 local
       host.
