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-process
communications accessible only to the curtrent user on the machine on
which it is running (where the operating system supports them).
Every user needs to have his own instance of
gdnc running. While
gdnc will be started automatically as soon as it is needed,
it is recommended to start
gdnc in a personal login script like ~/.bashrc or ~/.cshrc.
Alternatively (if you have no command-line tools which use distributed
notifications) you can launch gdnc when your windowing system or the
window manager is started. For example, on systems with X11 you can launch
gdnc from your .xinitrc script or alternatively
- if you are running Window Maker - put it in Window Makers autostart script.
