       gpbs - GNUstep PasteBoard Server




       The  gpbs daemon serves as a clipboard/pasteboard for GNUstep programs,
       handling the copying, cutting and pasting of objects as  well  as  drag
       and drop operations between applications.

       Every user needs to have his own instance of gpbs
        running.  While  gpbs  will  be started automatically as soon as it is
       needed, it is recommend to start gpbs in a personal login  script  like
       ~/.bashrc  or  ~/.cshrc.   Alternatively  you can launch gpbs when your
       windowing system or the window manager  is  started.  For  example,  on
       systems  with  X11  you  can  launch  gpbs 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 gpbs to a remote session use the -NSHost <hostname> argument.


       gdomap -L GNUstepGSPasteboardServer will lookup instances of gpbs.

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


       Versions of gpbs up to (including) 1.7.2 have problems  with  copy  and
       paste  of  mulit-lingual  text,  as it used the atom XA_STRING alone to
       exchange string data between X  clients  (and  thus  GNUstep  clients).
       This   means  gpbs  is  inherently  unable  to  do  cut-and-paste  with
       characters other than ISO Latin1 ones, TAB, and NEWLINE.
