GWorkspace - GNUstep Workspace Manager SYNOPSIS
This manual page documents briefly the GWorkspace GNUstep application. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. GWorkspace is the official GNUstep workspace manager. It is a clone of NeXT's workspace manager. GWorkspace is probably one of the most useful and usable workspace managers available on any platform, owing to its well-designed interface and the natural, consistent design that it inherits from the GNUstep framework. The first time you run GWorkspace you must set some preferences: GWorkspace needs a default editor to work. It can also be an app-wrapper. To set your editor, open the preferences window and choose "Default Editor" from the pop-up, then click on the "choose" button: from an open-panel you will be able to browse your directories and choose the editor. GWorkspace lets you open a terminal on the current directory (alt-t). To set your preferred terminal (the default is "xterm"), choose "XTerminal" from the pop-up. MODULES
Besides its standard Contents Inspectors, that is, App, Folder, Image, Sound, Pdf-Ps, Rtf, text, Plist, Strings and Inspector viewers, GWorkspace can dynamically load other modules which you can build separately. It is sufficient to put them in a place where GWorkspace looks for them, for example: ~/GNUstep/Library/GWorkspace. In the same way you can add other viewers besides the standard Browser, Icon and Small Icons viewers. If you want to write a new inspector or a new viewer, take a look in the Template directory. LANGUAGES
GWorkspace speaks English, French, German, Italian and Romanian. OPTIONS
There are no options. SEE ALSO GNUstep(7) openapp(1) defaults(1) February 18, 2004 GWORKSPACE(1)
