gdnc - GNUstep Distributed Notification Center
The gdnc daemon is used by GNUstep programs to send notifications and
messages to one another. By default it uses private inter-process
communications 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
recommended 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
system 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.
To attach gdnc to a remote session use the

with the NSHost, GSPublic, or GSNetwork command line arguments.
Alternatively, gdomap -N will list all registered names on the local
