       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

       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

       -NSHost hostname

       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


       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.
