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

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.

There are several accompanying programs which normally are not intended to be invoked
directly by the user. Some of them run as daemons and are launched by GWorkspace itslef.
Here is a short description:

Acts as a “trashcan”; files deleted from the GWorkspace menu “Move to Recycler” can be
restored. Can be docked.

This daemon is responsible for maintaining the GWorkspace database, located at

Filesystem watcher daemon.

A tool that updates the “Live Folders”.

A program that takes care to resize images on behalf the ImageViewer inspector.

A helper tool for GWorkspace's Finder module.

A tool to open files via GWorkspace. This program is specifically designed to be invoked
by the user. It accepts one argument, the filename to be opened, which can be relative or
absolute. GWorkspace must be running.


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.


Like most GNUstep applications, GWorkspace does not support any command-line options
(except the standard GNUstep ones).
