       gnunet-setup - a gtk interface for configuring GNUnet


       gnunet-setup [OPTIONS]


       gnunet-setup is a gtk+ based GUI for configuring GNUnet.

       The  first  time  you  run gnunet-setup, the goal will typically be to configure the peer,
       that is, the set of processes that always run in the background.  Those  processes  should
       run  as  user "gnunet" and thus gnunet-setup should be run as user "gnunet" for this step.
       Use the "-e" option to enable automatic privilege escalation using gksu (if  supported  by
       your  system).  Alternatively, you can of course run gnunet-setup from the "gnunet" system
       user account or even as "root".  If you see a tab "General", you  did  start  gnunet-setup
       correctly  to configure the peer.  You should now be able to configure which subsystems of
       GNUnet you want to enable, which databases to use  and  what  your  network  configuration
       looks  like.   After these steps are complete, you should be able to start your peer using

       It is recommended that "/etc/gnunet.conf" should be a world-readable copy  of  the  peer's
       GNUnet configuration.  Note that GNUnet configuration files (as generated by gnunet-setup)
       only contain those values that differ from the defaults.  Also note that "gnunet-arm" will
       by    default    look    for   a   configuration   in   "$HOME/.config/gnunet.conf"   (or,
       "$XDG_CONFIG_DIR/gnunet.conf" if "$XDG_CONFIG_DIR" is set); thus, if your configuration is
       in  "/etc/gnunet.conf",  you  have  to  pass  "-c  /etc/gnunet.conf"  to gnunet-arm or set
       "$XDG_CONFIG_DIR" to "/etc/".

       -a, --autoconfig
              try to automatically  configure  networking  for  the  peer  without  starting  the
              interactive GUI

       -c FILENAME, --config=FILENAME
              load config file (default: ~/.config/gnunet.conf)

       -e, --elevate-privileges
              Try  to  elevate  privileges to run gnunet-setup as user "gnunet".   This option is
              only available if libgksu-support was found on  your  system.   It  is  ignored  if
              gnunet-setup  is  run  as  user  "root"  or  "gnunet"  already.   If  "gksu" fails,
              gnunet-setup is run as the current user.

       -h, --help
              print help page

       -v, --version
              print the version number


       Many options in gnunet-setup are documented  online.  Access  the  online  help  by  first
       selecting the respective widget and then clicking on the link at the bottom of the dialog.

       Exiting  gnunet-setup  (by closing the window or pressing ESCape) always saves the current
       configuration to disk.
