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-processcommunications accessible only to the curtrent user on the machine onwhich it is running (where the operating system supports them).Every user needs to have his own instance ofgdnc
will be started automatically as soon as it is needed,it is recommended to startgdnc
in a personal login script like ~/.bashrc or ~/.cshrc.Alternatively (if you have no command-line tools which use distributednotifications) you can launch gdnc when your windowing system or thewindow manager is started. For example, on systems with X11 you can launchgdnc
from your .xinitrc script or alternatively- if you are running Window Maker - put it in Window Maker's autostart script.See theGNUstep Build Guide
for a sample startup script.
