       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

       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.


       -NSHost <hostname>
              attaches gpbs to a remote session.

              sends a notification through the NSDistributedNotificationCenter  (i.e.   gdnc)  so
              that  apps  know  that  it has started up. This is only relevant if the application
              itself tries to startup gpbs (which means gpbs was not started at session login).

              starts gpbs as a daemon - mostly this means that all output  gets  sent  to  syslog
              rather than the terminal.

              does not fork a separate process

              makes bs his logging more verbose


       gdomap -L GNUstepGSPasteboardServer will lookup instances of gpbs.

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


       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.
