gnunet-setup - a gtk interface for configuring GNUnet
gnunet-setup is a gtk+ based GUI for configuring GNUnet.
The first time you run gnunet-setup, the goal will typically be to configure the peer,
that is, the set of processes that always run in the background. Those processes should
run as user "gnunet" and thus gnunet-setup should be run as user "gnunet" for this step.
Use the "-e" option to enable automatic privilege escalation using gksu (if supported by
your system). Alternatively, you can of course run gnunet-setup from the "gnunet" system
user account or even as "root". If you see a tab "General", you did start gnunet-setup
correctly to configure the peer. You should now be able to configure which subsystems of
GNUnet you want to enable, which databases to use and what your network configuration
looks like. After these steps are complete, you should be able to start your peer using
It is recommended that "/etc/gnunet.conf" should be a world-readable copy of the peer's
GNUnet configuration. Note that GNUnet configuration files (as generated by gnunet-setup)
only contain those values that differ from the defaults. Also note that "gnunet-arm" will
by default look for a configuration in "$HOME/.config/gnunet.conf" (or,
"$XDG_CONFIG_DIR/gnunet.conf" if "$XDG_CONFIG_DIR" is set); thus, if your configuration is
in "/etc/gnunet.conf", you have to pass "-c /etc/gnunet.conf" to gnunet-arm or set
"$XDG_CONFIG_DIR" to "/etc/".

load config file (default: ~/.config/gnunet.conf)
Try to elevate privileges to run gnunet-setup as user "gnunet". This option is
only available if libgksu-support was found on your system. It is ignored if
gnunet-setup is run as user "root" or "gnunet" already. If "gksu" fails,
gnunet-setup is run as the current user.
