attaches gpbs to a remote session.
|sends a notification through the NSDistributedNotificationCenter (i.e. gdnc) so that apps know that it has started up. This is only relevant if the application itself tries to startup gpbs (which means gpbs was not started at session login).|
|--daemon||starts gpbs as a daemon - mostly this means that all output gets sent to syslog rather than the terminal.|
|does not fork a separate process|
makes pbs his logging more verbose
gdomap -L GNUstepGSPasteboardServer will lookup instances of gpbs.
Alternatively, gdomap -N will list all registered names on the local host.
Versions of gpbs up to (including) 1.7.2 have problems with copy and paste of mulit-lingual text, as it used the atom XA_STRING alone to exchange string data between X clients (and thus GNUstep clients). This means gpbs is inherently unable to do cut-and-paste with characters other than ISO Latin1 ones, TAB, and NEWLINE.
