       GWorkspace - GNUstep Workspace Manager




       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.


       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.


       GWorkspace speaks English, French, German, Italian and Romanian.


       There are no options.
